This delicate Spiral Goddess was designed for Sacred Source by
sculptor Abby Willowroot in conjunction with 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 onwards, 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.
