Brief History Paganism: 

Paganism represents a wide variety of traditions that emphasize reverence for nature and a revival of ancient polytheistic and animistic religious practices.  Paganism is not a traditional religion per se because it does not have any official doctrine, but it does have some common characteristics joining the great variety of traditions. One of the common beliefs is the divine presence in nature and the reverence of the natural order in life. Spiritual growth is related to the cycles of the Earth and great emphasis is placed on ecological concerns. Monotheism is almost universally rejected within Paganism and most Pagan traditions are particularly interested in the revival of ancient polytheist religious traditions including the Norse (northern Europe) and Celtic (Britain) traditions. Many Pagan traditions are intentionally reconstructionist in that they aim to revive many of the lost rituals of the ancient traditions, including holy days and seasonal celebrations. Besides Nature, many Pagans also worship a variety of gods and goddesses, including spirits which can represent national and local heroes.  Many Pagans try to honor their ancestry and ancestors. Some Pagan traditions include ritual magic, but this practice is not universal.

25cms (9.75") tall by artist Marc Potts in cold cast bronze resin with blue-highlights, this wonderful figurine depicts Hekate, accompanied by her dog familiar, in flowing robes and elaborate headdress with Crescent Moon and dogs' heads - representing the three stages of the Moon.   The Goddess Hekate is associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, fire, light, night, Moon, Magick, Witchcraft, herbs, poisonous plants, necromancy and sorcery.  She is the Patron Goddess of Witches.  The only child of the Titans, Perses and Asteria, from whom she received her power over heaven, earth, and sea - Hekate was also known as Soteria (Saviour); 'Mother of Angels' and 'The Cosmic World Soul'; one of the main Gods worshipped as a protective Goddess who bestowed prosperity and daily blessings. Hekate is often depicted with three faces - a tripartite goddess and representation of Maiden, Mother, Crone - re-interpreted in the 20th century from ancient myths, songs and statuary by such luminaries as Aleister Crowley and Robert Graves in The White Goddess.  Hekate assisted Demeter in her search for Persephone, guiding her through the night with flaming torches. Often depicted with her familiars, the black she-dog and the polecat.  Perfect for Altar or display.
