This week at 13 Goddesses out prompt is ROMAN, and I have chosen CYBELE.
She is another Mother Goddess, associated with mountains, lions and hawks.
She was not originally a Roman Goddess, but was assimilated from Phrygia(modern day Turkey) via the Greeks.
She is also a Goddess of walls and buildings, and was called upon by the Romans when they felt their own gods were failing them...
Cybele is often represented as having the body of a lion and the legs of a hawk, and carries a Cornucopia.
Can't be a Goddess of Plenty and not have a big bosom lol :D
Had a bit of a mishap when sealing the under layers with fixative. New can, new make, different reaction. Nothing ever reacted with the Newton and Windsor, but with the Daler and Rowney the pen lines bled??!
And it smells like hairspray...so I'm going to have to ditch that £12 can and get some more Newton ...which didn't have a strong smell at all :S
