Publisher's Synopsis
In this beautifully illustrated and far-reaching history. Elinor Gadon vividly weaves words and images to demonstrate the powerful connections between ancient and contemporary art, between the Goddess of the Ice Age and the Goddess of today.

This panoramic view of Goddess imagery extends from the prehistoric Goddess representations of Catal Huyuk, Malta, Avebury, and Crete, to the more patriarchal images of the Sumerians, Greeks, and Christians, to the wide range of contemporary artists inspired by the Goddess, including Frida Kahlo, Mayumi Oda, and Judy Chicago.

"Does the Goddess have a place not only in our past but in our future? In this venturesome and persuasively argued book, Elinor Gadon answers this question with a ringing affirmative... This is a volatile and controversial book."     ~Harvey Cox, Harvard U.

"Important and delightfully readable... Points the way to the reassessment and reconstitution of the bases of human relations. A seminally fascinating book."      ~Ashley Montagu
