A few months ago at art quilt critique group one of the members quipped that she was tired of seeing “goddess” images. I’m not sure now if she meant the actual images as over done by artist or as a theme. It stuck with me as I like examining how different artists portray goddesses and now I’m thinking that for me the question is how well the image is portrayed (how unique did the artist portray the image) versus how dependent the image is on other artists portraying the same image (not so unique).
I just started this book and am still in the introduction which is giving a brief overview of when the images of sacred begin to change from female; female/male to solely male. Time frames are broken into the Stone, Bronze, and Iron Ages.
