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 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

1986: National Museum of African Art acquires this headrest (19th century, DRC, Luba). How would you describe it in 1 word? #africanartat50 #africa The female form is abundantly represented in the arts of the Luba peoples. In the belief that only women's bodies were strong enough, a woman was selected to be the receptacle of a deceased king's spirit. The pair of females supporting this headrest may depict spirit mediums who live together in imitation of twin guardian spirits of Luba kings.

This dancing goddess from 3300 years ago is probably the ancient Greek goddess Demeter, or, as the Romans renamed her, Ceres, the source of our word cereal. She is from Ugarit, ancient Phoenecia, ancestral Canaan. She is the goddess of the grain and was believed to have given the gift of agriculture to us. She dances here bare-breasted, holding two sheaves of grain and with her animals on either side.
ca.1300 BCE. Dancing Goddess Waving Sheaves of Grain in her hands surrounded by lovely modeled Rampant Goats. Ugarit (N. Syria) Phoenician. Bare chested wearing an elaborate skirt, headdress, and jewelry. Symbols of fertility and agriculture. Louvre,

ISHTAR’S “MAGIC WAND Notice how this all configures to be the same deity. In “The Lesser Key of Solomon”, he is referred to as a very powerful demon. Depicted as a nude man with feathered wings, wearing a crown, holding a serpent in one hand, and riding a dragon-like beast with wings and a serpent-like tail. Considered to be a demon in the First Hierarchy and rules over 40 legions of Spirits.
Ishtar holding her weapon. Terracotta relief, early 2nd millennium BC. From Eshnunna. Myth of Ishtar's descent to the underworld - Ishtar approaches the gates of the underworld and demands that the gatekeeper open them. The gatekeeper hurried to tell Ereshkigal, the Queen of the Underworld. The gatekeeper lets Ishtar enter "according to the ancient decree" the underworld, opening one gate at a time. At each gate, Ishtar has to shed one article of clothing.
