Product Description

Roman Hecate Statue

6.5 inches tall

Flat white gypsum-stone

Hecate (or Hekate) is a Goddess of the Night, Moon, Magic and Female Mysteries.  She was an important figure in the Eleusinian Mysteries. She heard Persephone scream when Hades abducted her to the underworld, and she accompanied Demeter in the search for her daughter.

In classical Greece, Hecate was a Goddess of the night roads, Crossroads and graves.  She was also often accompanied by banshees, ghosts and hell-hounds and she even guards the gates to Hades in some myths.  Because of this she is often seen holding torches in images and icons.  Although she can be depicted with one face, she is often shown with three faces as in this plaque.  There are actually four views represented here, but one is perpetually hidden.  These three faces represent the directions of the crossroads, as well as the phases of the Moon.

Hecate looms large throughout the Ancient and Modern worlds as the Goddess of witchcraft and magic.  Often she is depicted as a cunning sorceress and her name is found on many curse tablets.

An interesting offering to her by patrons and devotees consisted of sacrificial cakes with miniature little torches on them (just like our modern-day birthday cakes).

This plaque can hang on the wall or stand on an altar. Copy of a statue from Rome, private collection in flat white Gypsum-stone. 6.5 inches tall, 5.75 inches wide.
