Product Description

Cybele & Hecate Statue

9.5 inches tall, 6.5 inches wide

Pewter-colored Resin

Of Phrygian origin, Cybele (Kybele) was originally a goddess of caverns, mountains, and the deep recesses of Earth in its primitive state. Her crown is often representative of mountains or city walls.  Like Diana of Ephesus, Cybele was also a goddess of wild beasts and bees.

Cybele's worship spread rapidly throughout the Roman Empire, and Cybele's Festival came first on the Roman Calendar.  Her ritual Festivals were loud, raucous, orgiastic and cathartic in nature.  The cult of Cybele was directed by eunuch priests called Corybantes, who led their devotees in orgiastic rites accompanied by wild cries and the frenzied music of flutes, drums, and cymbals. Her annual spring festival celebrated the death and resurrection of her beloved Attis.

Cybele was said by the Romans to be the same Goddess as the Greek Rhea.  During the transition to Christianity, Cybele's massive temple was replaced by St. Peter's Basilica.

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).

Copy of a fourth century relief from Piraeus, Greece. Resin plaque with pewter color finish.  9.5 inches tall, 6.5 inches wide and 2.5 inches deep.
