Thank you so much for your prompt and delightful service. I found and received exactly what I was looking for and am pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the oils and resin I ordered. Your prices are reasonable, your products are excellent, delivery was quick, and it was lovely to get a hand-written 'thank you' on my invoice as well as a small free gift. At the risk of repeating myself, I simply cannot say enough good about 13 Moons. Rest assured I will be doing most of my online pagan shopping at this site.Thank you!

Hecate With Torches Statue

Hecate: The Light Bearer
From the Eleusian Mystery School: gate-keeper, key-holder, she guards the door to the inner sanctuary of the Mysteries. The only goddess powerful enough to travel the three worlds, heaven earth and underworld. Also she is the Helper of childbirth and life changes.

Hearing from the utmost depths, the dread Goddess approached, all entwined with fearsome serpents and leaves of oak, amidst a shimmering blaze of torchlight; while all around her chthonic hounds bayed shrilly, all the meadows trembled at her footfall, and the nymphs of marshland and river cried aloud. So enters Hecate moving through the night. The only Goddess powerful enough to travel the three worlds: heaven, earth and underworld.

This image comes from the site of the famous Eleusian Mystery School. The rites concerned Hecate leading Persephone back from the underworld with her torches to embrace her mother, Demeter, and bring spring back to the world. A caring and personal guide, Hecate show us the way to and from her Mysteries. She is a key-holder and light-bringer, protector and transitioner. Gatekeeper and guide. Images of Hecate often guarded the doorway to the inner sanctuary of the Mysteries. Here she hurries through the night looking back to ensure we follow and do not loose our way at the crossroads.

Reconstructed from a pediment carving at Eleusis, Greece, 480 B.C.E.
6 inch resin statue, walnut shell color finish.
