Antonio Tempesta, “Arachne in araneam a Pallade convertitur (Athena Changing Arachne into a Spider)",1606, This image depicts Minerva turning Arachne into a spider after Arachne tries to hang herself. It is interesting that Minerva's arm is outstretched perhaps that is the artist's way of depicting her sprinkling Hecate's herb on Arachne.
"Dishonor on you, dishonor on your cow Arachne! blah blah blahh" -Athena I don't even have a cow lady. And I still look better than you. I have more legs than you. And they're longer than yours! HA! #fabulous #spider
