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.
