At the death of Arachne, Athena felt guilty and repented, turning her into a spider so that she could weave again.

The spider’s web has a connection with Native American peoples and with an object closely related to these as the “dream catcher”. It is thought that the Anishinabe tribe created this curious object. This people believed that the dream catchers had magical powers and that a “spider-woman” went around to visit the newborns of the tribe. This “spider-woman” would leave a magical spider web to protect children from harm.

Today the “dream catcher” is a very significant symbol of Native Americans, and is thought to attract beautiful dreams and reject and keep away those unpleasant and nightmares.

A girl's point of view

Spiders that are often tattooed and not many girls who have chosen this type of design are not small. Perhaps because of the adversity that some of us, despite being animal lovers, feel for this insect. If I have to be honest I would never choose a design like this, but I recognize that some can be fun from the position in which some girls place it, which give the impression of being real spiders on their body.
