This photograph was taken in Italy,Villa d’Este, Tivoli. It's a View of the grotto 'Fontana Della Madre Natura' with a statue of Diana of Ephesus, the great nature goddess. Sculpted by Gillis van den Vliete in 1568, the statue was originally part of the Fountain of the Organ, but was relocated in the 17th century for two reasons: to place in its place a little temple with a hydrolic organ, and it was felt to be overly pagan in appearance.

Celtic Gneiss Stone Figure of a Goddess, perhaps Brigantia, 200-300, stone from Outer Hebrides. A mother, warrior, virgin, hag, conveyor of fertility, giver of prosperity to the land and protectress of the flocks and herds. Tied to the land whose features seemed to be manifestations of her power. When no longer venerated, converted into local nymphs, guardians of wells, or supernatural hags, conferring benefits/evils. Celtic goddesses remain traceable in local saints and spirits of localities.

Steatopygous female figure, ca. 4500–4000 B.C.; Final Neolithic Cycladic Marble. This figure, now missing its head, is a masterful example of a rare type known as steatopygous, characterized by a fleshy abdomen and massive thighs and buttocks, all undoubtedly indicative of nourishment and fertility. In contrast, the figure's upper torso is flat in profile with the arms typically framing V-shaped, pendant breasts. The corpulent, markedly stylized, thighs taper to diminutive, stumplike feet.MET
