Painting - Watercolor And Graphite On Illustration Boatd
Hecate, the Greek goddess of witchcraft, childbirth and the crossroads, is a goddesses I've been always very attached to. Hecate has power over skies, earth and sea, which I wanted to show in each one of the three figures portrayed. The central one carries several symbols attributed to the goddess: the pomegranates in her hair remind us of the legend of Persephone, in which she plays an important role; while she hides her right eye behind her hand, the eye still shows through the fingers, showing that she's got the "vision", or the capacity of seeing the past, present and future. the moon under her right breast denotes that Hecate is a moon goddess, and that she protects the women in labor and their offspring - the moon is associated to the motherhood. The black dog is one of her companions.
