Dictynna, Labrys Goddess of Crete
This powerful woman-focused
Goddess dances into our universe double fisted and carrying her axes or labryses.
Dressed in nets, She is neither naked nor clad, and lines of force surround Her.
The double axes, or labryses, exclaim her active feminine energy. The labrys is
also a symbol of the female community of Lesbos...a group of women who
worshipped only the Goddess in nature and in each other.
Worshippers, in the original palace fresco, throw their arms up in amazement at
The original "She who must be obeyed," Dictynna lived on top of Mount
Dicta. Her powerful name lives on in our words "dictate" and
λάβρυς, lábrys) is the term for a symmetric
double-headed axe originally from Crete in Greece, one of the oldest symbols of
Greek civilization; to the Romans, it was known as a bipennis. The symbol was
commonly associated with female divinities.
