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--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 cultured stone resin with a hand painted color finish. (PN T12563)
