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 anointing with your favorite essential oil. The clay will hold the oil and slowly diffuse the scent over a period of time.
