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.

About this Goddess:

Venus of Willendorf – Europe 25,000 BCE – The great Goddess Willendorf is known to be the oldest. She is earth herself: her body reflecting mountains and valleys, fields and rivers, her palpable sensuality a celebration of physical existence.

O Great Mother, mother of us all, oldest of the old, come to me through the labyrinth of time to help me remember the wisdom of my forebearers, the eternal life.
