Virgo - Zodiac Goddess

Ilustration of a goddess that represents my interpretation of Virgo´s zodiac sign.
For the concept and main idea I based myself on the greek mythology of Astrea.

Astrea was living on the Earth during the Golden Age of Humanity. However, the violence, cruelty and deceit started to arise among humans like a disease, being this the start of the Bronze Age. Astrea was so vulnerable to this disease that she flew to the stars taking with her the Golden Age and leaving behind a cruel humanity begging for her return.
The myth says she will return to Earth with the utopic Golden Age, bringing end to human suffering.

For the style, I was heavily inspired by the book "Mitos griegos" (Castalia Fuente) which was ilustrated with the amazing art of Carles de Miguel.

I hope you like it!;)
