Arachne is a figure from Greek and Roman Mythology. She was a weaver whose talents rivaled the Goddess Athena’s. There are several tellings of the myth. In some cases it is believed she was turned into a spider out of jealousy, or to humble her. Others say that she was forbidden to weave by Zeus after displaying her talents were on par with the gods and goddesses. Athena felt for her and transformed into a spider so that she could weave for eternity. The original can be purchased at
