    well,

    i only have the style of the figurine and the postures to go by. firstly the bodies are one on top of the other projecting a rank or status classification practiced by most cultures of old. the "worship" postures are similar to that of Shiva or other dieties mentioned in texts like the Baghda Vida (definitely sun worship). So, this is strikingly resembling hindu worship of civilized north african men and women. I say north african because of the features (facial hair, breasts, weight, size).

    The Answer.

    Native American Triple Goddes. Represents Earth Cultures. Oneida, Pueblo and Cherokee.

    "At the top is the self-sacrificing maiden Aliquipiso of the Oneida tribe; then Irriaku, the Corn Mother who connects the Pueblo people with the Earth, at the base, in her tobacco-crown, is Grandmother Spider, Wisdom Goddess of the Cherokee. Smudge stick rituals can be used to invoke their wisdom and balance."

    Red/bronze colored resin.


    Now, here is another.
    Where is it from and
    WHO is it depicting?

    I thought it was Native American, but I didn't want to say because I wasn't sure. What made me think that was the feathered Goddess at the bottom of the totem. And yeah, it reminded me of a totem pole.

    If I'm not mistaken, the other one is Called the Black Maddona.
    Didn't it derrive from Ancient Egypt? It's also known as Isis and baby Horus(?)

    Sister Purple Moons...LOOK at the figure closely. Is that "Horus" or a MALE deity?


    And yes, it is ONE "Black Madonna" from FRANCE.

    "In many churches you may find images of the Black Madonna. these famous "Black Madonnas" of the Roman Catholic and Eastren Orthodox churches are statues of Isis with Heru converted to use as Mary and Jesus. Some of these statues are migging the arm that carried Bast the Cat Goddess. The Christians didn't like using the statues of Isis with the baby girl."

    The point here is that the socalled "Black Madonna" was initially a TRIPLE "Goddess" of Isis and her children Heru and Bastet (Bast).

    The worship of this TRIPLE GODDESS was practiced in ancient Kemet AND in "Meso-America" but with slightly different representations.

    This was the ORIGIN of the so-called Trinity.

    Bastet represented the "Holy Spirit" of Isis (Aset). Heru the "Sun". Aset was initially a LUNAR Diety.

    Mother, Son, "Holy Spirit".

    "Egyptians celebrated Bast's feast day, October 31st, with great joy and enthusiasm honoring their goddess, their protectress."

    October 31st.

    What happened to this feast day?

    Ohhhh!

    So the idea of a triple anything began in Egypt? Theres no other records indicating a triple duality before then?

    Hmmmm! I guess they had to promote their ideas of Christ somehow. Did Mary have any daughters according to the bible? I can't recall if I've read that or not.

    I hope you continue to post more Ancient images. The history and the design behind them are quite fascinating.
