Post-Minoan Minoanism




You know you can get these Minoan Snake Goddess figurines now. Check out the Snake Goddess Votary without her head here - you can see how she was restored (scroll down for that). Also, here's an example of Minoan costume in the opening ceremony for the Athens Olympic games.

Hi Caroline,

You know, for a moment while the pictures were loading, I thought the top one might turn out to be a photo of a woman from one of those weird Xtian snake-handling cults from the U.S.

It's amazing how patterns repeat themselves through history.
