Gods and Goddesses - ancient and modern art
As women become more of a force in our worldwide culture, goddesses also get more and more attention.
You will find some beautiful, some ancient and some modern art depicting goddesses from all over the world. You will learn something of the wide variety of themes the female life force has been associated with.
Fertility and justice are two classics - but what about death or wealth? From China to Europe; From Egypt to South American Inca - these female goddesses are tribute to the strength of women.
Goddesses of Wealth
Laksmi, Green Tara and the Japanese goddess of wealth are of a pattern: the female seen as nurturing the physical wealth of her devotees. It is not the sort of power we associate with women in our culture.Yet from Asia the image is consistent: it is a female divinity that people pray to for the practical support they need in daily life - just to survive, or even to become wealthy.

Kali - Destruction
Anthropologists suggest that the reason Kali is seen as destructive is because she is single: no man to control her strength and sexuality. However, she is worshipped in India.
She's fierce, she's aggressive - and she's one of the most powerful gods in the Hindu pantheon.

Alfred Gockel Art Print
Alfred Gockel creates modern art in vibrant colors. I think this sea goddess is one of his best works. He found a flow that shows the movement of the waters perfectly symbolizing the sea this goddess rules.
Saraswati (sarasvati) - This rather unusual rendition of the Hindu Goddess of learning has particular charm.
The Goddess Hathor Placing the Magic Collar on Seti I (circa 1394-1279 BC)
Goddess Hathor Welcoming Sety I to the Afterlife
His well preserved tomb, from which this picture was taken, was found early in the 19th century. It is not only one of the largest tombs, it is also the first to be lavishly decorated.
Hathor was a very diverse goddess: This shows her to be a central Goddess of ancient Egypt. She was goddess of love, music and beauty, cheerfulness, music and dance. Also known as the Mother of Mothers and the Celestial Nurse who presided over women, fertility, children and childbirth.
Gods often also have a fearsome aspect. In Hathor's case she was the Vengeful Eye of Ra, the Lady of Drunkeness, and a goddess of the dead as Lady of the West. As Lady of the Southern Sycamore, the sycamore was sacred to her. It was from the sycamore tree that she was thought to hand out good things to the deceased in the afterlife, and so she was thought to be a friend to the dead.
It is as friend of the dead that we see her handing a Magic Collar to Seti I.
