These goddess sculptures are reproductions of original pieces excavated in various parts of the world.

The clay pieces are sagger fired, rendering the clay vitrified (in a fired state) but leaving it porous, thus making it perfect for annointing with your favorite essential oil. The clay will hold the oil and slowly diffuse the scent over a period of time.

About this Goddess:

The Bird Headed Snake Goddess (Africa C 4000 B.C.E.) is a Goddess of Thanksgiving, celebrating life incarnate. The triumphantly female Bird-Headed Snake Goddess comes to us from the predynastic Egypt.

This sculpture is sometimes considered to be a worshipper of the Goddess, sometimes the Goddess herself. Yet she is both, reflecting the ancient knowledge that human and divine are one, just as she integrated the earthly snake and celestial bird.
