In neo-Pagan witchcraft the God and Goddess are the divine forces and the very essence of the craft, they are the Great Father and Great Mother whose limitless energy brings forth all life. They embody the living biosphere of the planet and the forces of the elements; they are the creators and destroyers. She, The Goddess, is the Queen of Heaven, she is the moon, the source of magical power; she is emotion, intuition and the pyschic faculty. He, The God, is the sun, the source of masculine energy; he is the raw force, wisdom and law.

God and Goddess Great Rite Statue

The Forest God and Moon Goddess join their magical energies as they embrace in the most sacred Pagan Wiccan ritual.

Seated on a pentacle within a circle, they are surrounded by symbols of their mastery over life, death, love, power and energy.

While the historical origins of the actual Great Rite as sacred ritual are shrouded in mystery, for many Pagans and Wiccans today the symbolic Great Rite is central to their spiritual practices. The symbolic Great Rite is often observed with the ritual immersion of an athame (blade) into a chalice (cup), which serve to represent the union of the God and the Goddess.

The sacred marriage (hieros gamos) of the Goddess and the God is traditionally celebrated at Beltane on May 1.

Crafted in resin, 9 inches.
