I am so good at weaving, even the goddess Athena can't beat me!
Arachne was talented at weaving and much more. She began to boast about her skills.
I am better then Athena so you should stop going to her festivals and temples.
People started to believe Arachne and stopped going to her festivals and temples.
Athena came down to earth as an old lady, to talk to Arachne
You should plead for forgiveness before it's too late!
I speak only the truth and if Athena thinks otherwise I challenge her!
.Athena revealed to Arachne that she was looking at Athena the whole time. Athena then challenged Arachne to the challenge she had wanted. Athena crafted a tapestry that said good things about gods and Arachn's depicted the gods.
Athena was furious about the tapestry so she ripped up Arachne's work. Arachne was so devastated she tried hanging herself.
Athena out of total despair turned Arachne's rope into a spider web. She also turned arachne into the first spider. This is a lesson that if you have skills don't boast about them.
