Great Rite Statue 64-PGR
The Great Rite Statue depicts the Forest God, or Horned One, and Moon Goddess join their magical energies as they embrace in the most sacred 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.
