Minoan Snake Goddess Statue by Ancient Treasures

The original was found in a storage room in the Palace of Knossos, Crete. She is a votive offering and not a cult figure and therefore, probably represents a Priestess who is perhaps a princess of the palace. Although she is dressed in the garb of her deity, a Cretan Earth Mother, she is a personification of Earth from which all life springs and returns. She carries the snakes, symbols of death and rebirth. Crouching on her crown is a lion cub, usually associated with royal houses. In her crown are poppy pods, indicating the use of opium in her worship. The ancient Greek civilization at Crete has provided some of the earliest examples of ancient Greek art. The Minoans were seafaring trades with an extensive palace at Knossos which was excavated by Sir Arthur Evans beginning in 1900.

Bonded stone statue is 12 inches high based on the original in the Herakleion Museum, Crete, Greece. 1600 B.C.
