This art carries an ancient thread of the “Language of the Goddess”. The language of the sacred feminine that we know deep in our bones. These threads still exist, embedded in cultural stories, folklore, and art around the world.
This small, plam sized figurine is one of the last remaining Crones we made in the 1980s, and is a symbol of the life-death-life cycles of nature that women embody. The nine-pointed star inside a circle is a symbol of the Crone, major arcana IX, in the Mother Peace Tarot deck. "Nine is three times three, thrice the power of creation, bringing the process of creation to its final culmination."
All the vintage goddesses are made from the same-sized ball of clay but take on different shapes. The Crone is shorter and rounder. Made from Pacific Northwest clay and stained with natural pigments. Approximately 1.5 inches tall.
The Crone is the life-death-life aspect of the goddess. She holds and balances Earth energy. Her body is a throne, and in her lap is the mystery of the cycle of life, death, and regeneration. She remembers, and through her memories, she knows. Listen to the stories of your own experience. Out of darkness comes light.
