Goddess sculptures 2200-1600 BCE. e middle three images of the top row show three versions of the Late-Minoan figure usually called theSnake Goddess. There are some doubts, however, whether or not these may rather be depictions of the High-Priestess at the palace of Knossos. Even if this is correct, the priestess was seen as a representative of the deity, so the image is a sacred one in any case.
