Recounts the story of a little known but pivotal mythological character, known in Greek as Baubo, from primitive African and European carvings and cave paintings through classical art and literature and the facades of medieval Christian churches to contemporary mythmaking. Her characteristic bawdy jokes and gestures represent a female energy and power that have been suppressed or demonized by male-centered society. Annotation c.
