Galactic Goddess


Galactic Goddess, July 5, 2021, 9:12 PM.

The Galactic Goddess makes tangible the light that shines inside everyone.  She floats silently, full of air and still somehow made of stone, above a world perfect in its imperfections. 

She calls to mind some of the most ancient objects ever found, like this classic limestone sculpture of a female form found near Willendorf, Austria; its age is estimated at about 30,000 years.  An ivory sculpture of a female found at Hohle Fels Cave in Germany goes back even further, with a maximum estimated age of nearly 40,000 years–reportedly the oldest known representation of a human figure.

There are several rudimentary goddess-like objects that are much older, dating back hundreds of thousands of years, such as those found at Berekhat Ram in Israel and Tan-Tan in Morocco. Though there is supposedly adequate evidence—particularly in the former case—that they were human-made sculptures rather than natural objects that happened to look humanoid, their form is less definitively figurative.

If those great spans of time are too mind-boggling, this more recent goddess sculpture from the great Fernando Botero was created in 1997.
