Description
The abstract elegance of this amulet is timeless: it is kin to both stone age Venuses and the nudes of a 20th century master like Matisse. With just a few lines and curves, she evokes the eternally feminine. The tradition to which this exquisite figure belongs is older than civilization itself. Such goddesses reflect the hopes and dreams of countless generations of women. In whatever age and whatever guise she appears-- as Egyptian Isis, Babylonian Astarte, Roman Venus-- her power is strong and benevolent. A unique amulet certain to bless the wearer with its ancient magic. - (FJ.3169)
