Description

Details

This mother goddess was found in Senorbi, a Turriga locality in the island of Sardinia, Italy, in the ruins of a neo-lithic village. It's form clearly represents fertility and is very reminecent of the Cycladic art from Greece. She represents the Earth and its fertility and continuation of life, the Mother Goddess, the universal female principle even if it is in its most primitive conception. Women were recognized as the life-givers and sustainers. They were revered as priestesses. Female figures, such as this one are found from the Pyrenees mountains to Siberia, indicating that East and West were once united in honoring the Goddess. The vast majority (over 90%) of human images from 30,000 to 3,000 B.C. are female.
