Masked goddess

This beautiful wall hanging was found in the home of our good friends, Tim & Sue. I'm not sure who it represents, but perhaps the goddess, Hecate.

Specs: Nikon D300; f/4; 1/30 sec; ISO 800; -0.7 step.

This painting is awesome and your picture just perfect.
I have a sensation of "relief" (soft ) in this image.
Maybe this sensation is about the shadow and light.
Very cool! :)

She is beautiful and seems a little shy, except for the fact that she is baring half of her body! This is a lovely piece of art.

I wonder if she's hiding her face because she knew you'd post her photo all over the Internet. :)

Ah so beautiful--like one of the Graces'.

My question: How come on the side pics showing your blogs there is a picture of blue sky and maybe birds (for Images) but when I click on that I encounter this half naked goddess.
What gives? MB
