Women Images on RAKU

scorpion godess iraq 5,000BCEORIGINAL ART: PLATE WITH SCORPION GODDESS AND HER DANCERS –  4,000 B.C.E.

The images on Laura Rose’s hand-thrown pots on this page are drawn from ancient art from all parts of the world. Each one give us a window into the hearts and minds of some of the most ancient ancestors that we can access through any language. There are very few examples of humans in the most ancient caves of Europe. In later eras, especially in Africa, we do find hunters within murals.

Small sculptures of women, such as a famous Venus of Willendorf, with large breasts and buttocks, were originally thought to be carvings made by women to beg for fertility. When women began to join the field of archaeology, they found so many of these figures stored in the basements of museums that they debunked that idea and postulated that these stones were actually representations of the goddess. In those times god was perceived more often as female.

It is still not clear what the original etchings of female forms meant on the cave walls. There were certainly many simple renderings of female sexual parts, but we will never know what the beginnings of graceful female figures were meant to mean beyond the stunning art that they are. They were probably part of spiritual practice and ritual, and newest thought connects them with the cycles of the moon and stars, possibly even the beginnings of astrology.
