Minoan snake goddess statue

Crete, 1600 b.c.e — possibility of a goddess. Jaguar headdress, Egyptian connection, fertility priestess… it is unclear what function this statue really fulfilled or represented, but the suggestion is of a powerful female deity or connection.

I love the curvy, sexual power of her.
