Visions of the GoddessBook - 1998
For centuries, cultures throughout the world have venerated the feminine aspect of God--a goddess archetype that was the giver of life and death. Now, goddess mythology has taken on new meaning in Visions of the Goddess. Authors Courtney Milne and Sherrill Miller give us Mother Earth, not just as a symbol, but also as a vital energy manifest in the landscape of our planet.Through breathtaking photos of natural landscapes and in-depth histories of goddess archetypes for each region shown, Visions of the Goddess takes us back in time through the eyes of the ancient peoples. We learn that the goddess can assume many guises, from Hera, the Mother Goddess of Greece and symbol of fertility and abundance, to the dark female energy of the Hindu Goddess Kali, who through the symbol of death is truly the slayer of the world's illusions. This insightful and wonder-provoking exploration of the feminine world is divided into sections--Earth Mother, The Fruit Bearer, The Water Goddess, and The Sky Dancer--in a stunning photographic survey that will alter the way we think about Mother Earth.
