  • The Story of Arachne
  • The purpose behind this myth is to explain how spiders came to be and why they spin thread.
  • According to the myth, Arachne was a very skilled weaver, who boasted about her skills.
  • Arachne claimed that she was a better weaver than the goddess of wisdom, Athena. Infuriated, Athena came to Earth, where she and Arachne could see who was better.
  • Each woman had weaved 4 works each. Athena's 4 works consisted of pictures of the gods punishing humans because humans thought they were equal to them. Arachne's 4 works consisted of pictures of god's and how they abuse the humans.
  • Arachne's work was obviously better, which made Athena extremely angry because of what the work was showing. She had a potion from Hecate, in which the person affected by it, would turn into a spider, so Athena threw it at Arachne.
  • Arachne turned into a spider and was condemned to weave silk for all eternity.
