Spiral Goddess Statue
By Abby Willowroot
This beautiful Spiral Goddess is a powerful and graceful Altar Goddess. On the reverse side is a sacred tree and a full, a waning and a waxing Moon.
She measures 8 inches tall and is crafted of gypsumstone with white antique stone color.
"She Who Creates from Her Own Source" the Spiral Goddess is a classic, contemporary Goddess archetype created by Abby Willowroot in 1978. "She Who" is about claiming your deepest self and most personal knowings, and daring to spiral your true essence into the Universe. Deep at our core we all have a part of ourselves we feel no one would really understand. But, it is this part of yourself that everyone would understand. It is your humaness and the secret place your true gifts reside. Dare to claim that part of yourself and be the very best, most dynamic you possibly can be!
This delicate Spiral Goddess was designed by sculptor Abby Willowroot for the Goddess 2000 Project, whose simple goal is to place a Goddess Shrine on every block in every city on Earth. Spiral-force or serpent force is the Goddess energy. From deepest Prehistory onward, the spiral was associated with horns and snakes, and symbolized dynamism, fertility and the vital magic of life. Profusions of spirals decorate ancient temples in Ireland, Malta and Mycenea, as well as countless pictographic monuments throughout the world. Here the Goddess raises her arms, invoking the spiral-power within Her. On the reverse, her arms are joined in the "drawing down the moon" gesture. A leafless tree represents the Goddess rooted in the Earth, swelling toward regeneration while bathed in the glow of waxing, full, and waning moons.
You are a blessing in the Universe, dare to let yourself shine!
