New York, NY 1995 Soft Cover First Edition, 2nd Printing Fine in None as Issued jacket BRAND NEW Copy. Lithuanian-American archeologist Marija Gimbutas (1921-1994), was known ... for her research into the Neolithic and Bronze Age cultures of "Old Europe". Combining traditional archaeology with linguistics and mythological interpretation, she constructs an overview of Neolithic cultures on a pan-European scale (including habitation patterns, social structure, art, religion and literacy) and to articulate the differences between the matristic Old European and the patriarchal Indo-European Bronze Age systems that followed. This book provides an essential key for deciphering the contrasting cultural elements that became entangled and fused in subsequent European societies. Read more Show Less

Through the interpretation of images and symbols, she reveals these matriarchal cultures, decoding the symbolic language that has remained embedded in our civilization. Illustrated with nearly 2, 000 symbolic artifacts ? sculptures, figurines, temple models, frescoes, vases, sacrificial containers ? the book establishes the Goddess as the most persistent feature in the archaeological record of the ancient world. A symbol of the unity of all life in nature, her power was in water and stone, in cave and tomb, in animals and birds, in hills, trees, and flowers. Her main functions w Read more Show Less
