In antiquity Hekate Hekate was often depicted as Hekateion.
Three beautiful maidens depicted around a central pillar.
These figures were quite popular and the Hekateia had several symbols in the hands of the Goddess. Torches, Oinochoe (libation pitcher), Phiale (libation bowl), fruit and dogs to the feet of the Goddess. In roman time keys, serpents, crescent moon, dagger and whip were added as well.
I organise open rituals for Hekate since some years and opened a COH Sanctuary this year in which open group rituals in honour of Hekate are celebrated.
During trance work and meditations I often felt that Hekate wants a statue where she is depicted with Oinochoe and Phiale, for the sanctuary rituals.
But so far the modern statues that are sold don’t depict her with these ancient symbols.
Today I was able to get a very beautiful roman statue that wears an Oinochoe and a Phiale
(I think the statue depicts a nymph).
The statue is quite large (over one meter) and today i was meditating about how to colour this statue as a representation of Hekate.
During this meditation it got quite clear that she wants a Hekateion. So I will buy two of these statues again (so that I have three identical statues) and a fitting Greek Polos (pillar). And will create a Hekateion for the sanctuary room, Thie Hekateion will be used in the group rituals, when it is finished.
The statues will be hand painted by an quite talented local artist and other elements will be added to the Hekateion, for example jewellery, burning torches (oil lamps in torch form),
serpents, dog statues to the feet of the Goddess.
And the statue will be ensouled in a ritual.
At the moment I still need around 300 Euro- for the project and will begin to save money for it.
In antiquity statues, shrines and temples were often erected through donations.
Donations are very welcome for this project. And can be given via paybal with my e-mailadress:
