It is a wonderful take on Arachne; who is almost always depicted post-punishment or wraith. The myth with Athena is new by comparison to her origins. I don't know if you are familiar with the Greek Fates, but she was originally one of them. Clotho spins the thread of life determining your life's quality; Lachesis measures out the span of your life; And Atropos cuts the thread of life, determining the manner of your death. Each of the threads are given to Arachne, who then weaves them into the fabric of existence. It is Arachne who knows the meaning of life and how everything and everyone relates. I am happy to see her depicted in beauty rather than infamy. Great work.
Really moody and efffective!
