In my attempts to keep you updated on what I am doing, here are some paintings I have been making for a coven mate:
Above you can see the goddess of crossroads, Hekate. She is also the goddess of where sky, sea and land meet. In recent folklore, she is associated with the three faces of the moon, and the three ages of woman. She is also, in recent folklore, considered a Witch goddess. Here here crone face and the void moon are facing the viewer.
Demeter has already found her place on a makeshift altar my coven mate’s daughter put together. In fact, a five year old took this photograph. Both of these paintings are based on ancient sculptures and reliefs, but of course I add my own touches. Demeter is the patron goddess of the Elysian Mystery Cult. And for this reason, the image of her with golden grain is very descriptive. Demeter is also a two faced goddess of summer and winter. When her beloved daughter Persephone is with her lover in Hades, Demeter is sad and desolate.
Despite moving this into a new house a week ago, I have already set up my Yule tree, and I will get a good photograph to share with you soon.
