Hecate Bronze Statue
Hecate Bronze Figurine by Marc Potts
Cold cast in bronze, this mystical Goddess in ancient Greek religion and mythology, most often associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, light, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, ghosts, necromancy, and sorcery. Here she is depicted as a singular being, surrounded by her dogs. Dogs were a common sacrificial animal in rites to invoke the goddess, and the sacrificed dog was often eaten, but some theories hold that Hecate’s dogs were actually shades or demons.
