Mother Goddess Necklace
A replica of a 5000 year-old Maltese statue found at the Tarxien Temples.
The Mother Goddess represented an ideal of beauty and fertility - the bounty of earth, motherhood and creation. The statue may have acted as a guardian for the temple, another feature of motherhood.
I was excited by the idea of how our ideas about beauty change over time, and made this replica to represent change, creation and the beauty of all human life.
