Goddess of Knossos

Goddess of Knossos-2
"GODDESS OF KNOSSOS"
38"x64" by Nina Benedetto © 2010

 

My favorite ancient artifact is the little figurine from Knossos, which has been described as the classic sculpture of a woman comfortable with her own body, beauty, and power.  
The outline of her figure is superimposed on the image of a woman’s view looking down on herself.   She shakes asps which are her protection, and wears a leopard on her head symbolizing intuition.
