Charlotte poses with a furry woodland creature, or does she.
The rabbit looks a little nervous, does he know more than he should, or is he just frightened because he's a rabbit and rabbits are always frightened.
Either way, Charlotte looks somewhat avid about her companion.
The portrayal of witches in Greek Mythology
Part 2: Circe (Seer-si)
Circe is believed to be the daughter of Helios, (the god of the sun) and Perse. Other accounts make her the daughter of Hecate, yet maintain her paternity as Helios. (It is said her hair was the color of the morning sun, fire red.)
She was skilled in the magic of metamorphosis, the power of illusion, and the dark art of necromancy. Renowned for her vast knowledge of drugs and herbs and through the use of magical potions and a wand she transformed her enemies, or those who offended her, into animals. She is sometimes regarded as the inventress of magic and spells. In the Homeric Epigram she is invoked almost as the daimona (spirit) of magic.
Cierce's name was derived from the Greek verb kirkoô meaning "to secure with rings" or "hoop around"--a reference to her magical powers.
When Circe murdered her husband, the prince of Colchis, she was expelled by her subjects and placed by her father on the solitary island of Aeaea. The island of Aiaia was located in the westmost region, on the boundary between the sea and the river Okeanos which encircled the earth.
In Homer's Odyssey, Circe is described as living in a mansion that stands in the middle of a clearing in a dense wood. Around the house prowled strangely docile lions and wolves, (The drugged victims of her magic?) they were not dangerous, and fawned on all newcomers. Circe worked at a huge loom. She invited Odysseus' crew to a feast of familiar food, a pottage of cheese and meal, sweetened with honey and laced with wine, but also laced with one of her magical potions, and she turned them all into swine with a wand after they gorged themselves on it.
Some say she transformed Men into Swine as the first metaphor for Men are Pigs (Was Circe actually the first Feminist expressing her contempt for Sexist Pigs?) Others say she transformed people into the animal that best suited their Character. In some accounts the animals were maintained as servants while other accounts portray her as eating those she transformed. Others (there go those others again) portray Circe as viewing Humans as the lowest form of life and her transformations as an improvement upon those with whom she would associate. And some really boring accounts, very recently, attribute the transformations as being drug induced hallucinations because of her expertise with drugs and herbs. (Boring – pay no attention to those stuffed shirts at the University)
Circe is rarely depicted in Vases or Statuary.
An unusual miniature fifth-century Greek bronze (in the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore,) takes the form of a man on all fours with the foreparts of a pig - expressing the artist's dilemma: how can an artist depict a man bewitched into a pig other than as a man with a pig's head? While an author can discuss the mind and the voice, an artist cannot show them.
