Alala-Spirit of the War Cry - 8x10 Metallic Print


"Harken! O Alala, daughter of Polemos! 
Prelude of spears! 
To whom soldiers are sacrificed
for their city’s sake in the holy sacrifice of death."

Alala was the female personification of the war cry in Greek mythology. She was the daughter of Polemos, the daemon of war. Her name means loud cry, and particularly "war-cry." She was an attendant of the war god Ares, whose war cry was her name, "Alale alala". Greek soldiers attacked the enemy with this battle cry in order to cause panic to the enemy lines. It is reputed to be derived from the horrific sound owls make.

Meditate on Alala when your inner battle maiden needs to find her own voice again.
