The Crone at Samhain

This picture is from a MotherTongue Wheel of the Year performance, although the original energy and character was part of an EarthSpirit Open Samhain Circle.

The crone is also known as the dark mother, old woman of wisdom, magic, and power. She aided the dying as they passed over, and knew the secrets to prepare the bodies of the dead.

The chant used with this piece is "Hecate, Cerridwen". The lyrics for this chant are on
The Pagan Chant Library.
