Sculpted in a boldly expressionist manner, this little goddess evokes the eternally feminine. Far older than civilization, she represents fertility, fecundity, passion and renewal. Millennia ago, someone offered this simple votive to win the favor of the Goddess. The ancient supplicant has vanished, along with the cult of the deity, and we have no way of knowing if those ancient wishes were granted. Yet we realize that the dreams of the past-- for health, for prosperity, and happiness-- were not so very different from those of the present. This charming pendant lends the wearer a sense of perspective, and the protection of forces as old as time. - (SJ.1125)
