Description
The profound mysteries and hidden secrets of the mother Goddess is given potent expression in this ceramic figurine, created by the Valdivian culture of Ancient Ecuador. A poetic symbol of fertility, harmony and the continuity of life, this seated female figure reaches across the wide expanse of time and space, communicating the most universal of mankind's needs and desires. With foreshortened arms and legs our attention is focused not on her limbs but rather on her womanliness, given full expression through ample breasts and fully rounded stomach. As she focuses her attention upon us, we are at once compelled to see in her open eyes the oneness of nature, to hear from her parted lips the nurturing words of the great mother, the source of all life. - (PF.2648)
