From the very beginning of time, our ancient ancestors carved Talismans from bone, stone, clay and wood. As a means of keeping in touch with life's cosmic, invisible and mysterious forces, these spirited creations formed an important part of man's culture. This stunning Valdivian ceramic figurine is a magnificent representation of one of those forces--The Great Mother--source of perpetual renewal, love and nurturing. Her sensual, fertile body, which begs to be cradled within our hand, evokes the enormous fecundity of nature in all its manifestations. Created from clay, this ancient ceramic figure is truly rooted in the earth, and it is from this source that she gives the gift of life eternal. - (PF.2651)
