I absolutely LOVE this image of Hekate. She looks quite mighty here. It boldly captures many of her aspects!
This statue is of Hekate leading Persephone up from the Underworld. I associate it with Hekate as torchbearer, guide, and companion, among other things.
This image is not one of my absolute favorites but I still see Hekate in it, perhaps as Denizen of the Space Between, Leader of Dogs and Restless Spirits.
Again, Hekate as torchbearer, guide, and companion leading Persephone up. Here she ensures the turning of the year in Greek mythology by facilitating Persephone’s return. The return of life – rebirth – after a period of death.
Another three-formed image of the Goddess. I like the items she holds in her hands. The dagger and torches I can make out. I am not quite sure about the third item. Any ideas?
Honestly, anytime Hekate waves around flaming torches, I get excited :-). So this one is for good measure. It depicts Herakles leading Kerberos away as one of his twelve labors.
…and still more Trivia for the Hekate, or in this case, Hecate lovers.
Hekate kicking butt. Nuff said.
This image transfixed me for at least 3 minutes when I first saw it. Again, I appreciated the loaded symbolism. I also like that in this image she seems shrouded or cloaked in night but the darkness does not blind you to the light contained in her being. The image also screams of the mysteries, blessings, and curses of the crossroads. *squee* I love it! Also, if you visit Hrefngast on DeviantArt, you can read the amazing poem in Hekate’s honor.
That’s all folks. What are some of your favorite images of Hekate?
