Minoan Greek Snake Goddess from Crete Statue Replica 12.25H -
Not a snake-charmer, she is a snake goddess! The people of Crete seem to have worshiped a mother goddess sacred to many places and manifest in many forms. This Snake Goddess (c. 1600 BC)--who shakes two snakes as an animal sits on her head--may have been used as part of this ritual. Illustrated in other archeological evidence, the open bodice and flounced skirt was a favored style worn by Minoan women.
