Description
It hardly seems to matter when this primal yet charming image was created; for she is as timeless as all mankind. With her attitude of fecund abundnace, she is the sister of the Neolithic earth-mothers, of the bronze-age astartes, and of all other fertile female deities. Her presence in an ancient Mexican tomb would have served as a joyful reminder of the continuity of life. - (PF.0930)
