The Language of the Goddess

Couverture
Thames and Hudson, 1 janv. 1989 - 388 pages
"The purpose of this book is to present the pictorial script for the religion of the Old European Great Goddess, consisting of signs, symbols, and images of divinities. Illustrated with nearly 2000 symbolic artefacts - sculptures, figurines, temple models, frescos, vases, sacrificial containers - the book forges a framework that supports the recovery of a long-suppressed portion of European heritage. Through the interpretation of images and symbols, the author reveals the basic worldview of these ancient European matriarchal cultures and decodes the symbolic language that has remained embedded in our civilization". -Dust jacket.
