Not a snake-charmer, she is a snake goddess! The people of Crete seem to have worshiped a mother goddess sacred to many places and manifest in many forms. This Snake Goddess (c. 1600 BC)--who shakes two snakes as an animal sits on her head--may have been used as part of this ritual. Illustrated in other archeological evidence, the open bodice and flounced skirt was a favored style worn by Minoan women.

Now in the Herakleion Museum, Crete, this reproduction is made from resin with a hand painted polychrome finish, 12.25"H x 7.5"W x 2.5"D.
