I’m curious as to what thoughts people might have about an illustration I found in Wikipedia. As far as I can see, it’s only been used there and one other web site. I can’t find any info about who created it. The user who uploaded it is called “Camocon”, and they declared it Public Domain. The description is . . .

The divine couple in Wicca, with the Lady as Diana, the moon goddess, and the Lord as Pan, the horned god of the wild Earth. The lower figure is Mercury or Hermes, the god or divine force of magic – as shown by his wings and caduceus.

Personally, I like this image. I find it sort of ‘deep’, so to speak, (like a Tarot card, for example), in the sense that there’s obvious symbolic content beyond what you might expect in simply portraying two divinities as a couple. Hermes seems to be depicted as a child – like a ‘cherub’? – but clearly identified by the Caduceus.
