Crossing Over (Headless Goddess) is a statue of Lethe, the Goddess who prepares the dead for their journey into the underworld. She greets the dead as they approach the river Lethe, also known as the River of Forgetfulness. Her murmuring induces a drowsiness as she asks them to drink the water, forgetting their past lives to prepare them for a new incarnation. The statue is headless, partly to represent the act of forgetting, but partly because she is such an obscure figure in mythology. I learned of her by mistake while researching another myth, and failed to find any physical description or back story for her existence. I became interested in this partial manifestation, making the figure semi-invisible. All that is known is the sound of her murmuring and the oblivion that follows the encounter.
