Reproduction of a faience statuette, the original of which dates to ca 1600BC. She was found in the crypt - central sanctuary - of the Palace at Knossos. Serpents were, in this context, symbols of fertility. She wears a long robe and an apron and her two breasts, also symbols of fertility, abundance and nurturing, are bare and characteristically protruding. She is in the museum in Heraklion in Crete.

Made for us in Greece, she is made of keramin (a strong plaster/polymer compound), then painted by hand.
