Artist's Description

A digital collage inspired by the rituals and worship of the Ancient Minoan Snake Goddess or Priestess from the Palace of Knossos, Crete, dated 1600 bce.

In this aspect she embodies the Fertility and Spirit of the Great Earth Mother from which all life begins and returns.

The snakes were worshipped as guardians of her mysteries of birth and regeneration and were often believed to be incarnations of the dead. They symbolised immortality in the shedding and renewal of their skins.
