A souvenir from a different time
for believers in providence
She is 24.000 years old and no taller than a small cigar.
She was made for carrying with you and holding on to.
So far about a 140 of her have been dug up, scattered about the distant corners of Europe.
Her voluptuous figure embodies Abundance.
Her fabulous breast emphasizes her motherliness, her nursing power, her mothering.
A better symbol for Providence is hard to find.
But then, she is from a time when a supreme divine force wasn't necessarily considered to be male.
