Description
Simple of form yet powerful of spirit, this anthropomorphic figurine speaks of the heart and mind of an ancient people. As we observe the figures curving breasts and swelling hips we are reminded of the great goddess, the mother of all life who nourishes and enriches us one and all. Down through the ages her likeness has been rendered by man in all forms of media, however, nowhere is she interpreted as more potent than in this ceramic sculpture. Moreover, time has treated this figurine kindly, for the softly weathered finish on her surface further enhances the eternal qualities of this ancient female spirit. - (PF.2623B)
