From the Palace of Knossos! The "younger" Goddess of Fertility, Animals, Cities, Households, Harvests and the Underworld. These idols (see also Code 834) were found only in house sanctuaries, where the snake appears as "the snake of the household", and they are probably related with the Paleolithic tradition regarding women and domesticity. This figure holds two snakes in her raised hands and a small animal is perched on her head, which seems to be the imitation of a panther.
About 1600 BC. Herakleion Museum.
Hand painted, snakes and panther are made by bronze.
