The eyes on this serene and pretty goddess are unusually large. Originally inlaid with stone or paste, they now appear to reflect her mood of quiet introspection. Deities such as this--eternally female, calm and reassuring--have been worshiped since the dawn of time. The slight smile on her lips suggests a forgiving tolerance of human nature, the certainty that civilization will continue to thrive in spite of itself. - (PF.1227)
