Hecate's Garden handmade journal
This variant is currently sold out
Created as a devotional to Hecate, the greek goddess of witchcraft, crossroads, night, necromancy, and the moon. She also resides over poisonous plants and her association with such stems from her legendary herb garden on the island of Colchis, in which she grew poisonous plants in addition to other medicinal herbs. Her skill of working with the volatile nature of poisonous plants was unmatched, and she passed on her vast knowledge to her handmaiden and devoted priestess, the witch Medea. The crescent moon on which she rests is a symbol of her reign over the dominion of night. She holds aloft two torches in reference to her aid of Demeter and Persephone as well as her illumination of crossroads, thresholds, & areas of transition.
Hecate's Garden is original artwork drawn and screen printed by Adrienne Rozzi. The back of the journal features another work by Rozzi entitled Night Ritual.
