Arachne’s Pride – Deadly Sin #6

Deadly Sinner #6 : Arachne

Arachne was a talented weaver who produced some of the finest cloth in all of Ancient Greece. But soon pride and arrogance crept into her head (Greek Hubris) and she boasted that she was a better weaver than Athena herself! Athena then set up a tapestry making competition with Arachne. Arachne used this opportunity to mock the gods in her tapestry pictures. In a violent rage, Athena transformed Arachne into a the first spider.

And for thousands of years,  Arachnids have been weaving webs in the corners of our houses, our basements and our attics.
