This handmade clay sculpture of a pregnant woman is a replica of the clay statues of fertility goddesses on thrones found in the archaeological excavations of ancient Trypillian sites. These goddess idols were displayed in every household as a symbol of blessing, fertility, and prosperity. Thousands of these goddesses have been found in the areas of modern-day Ukraine, Romania, Moldova. The Trypillian culture was an advanced Neolithic culture that thrived from 5500 to 2750 BCE.
These statues are handmade for us by Ukrainian master ceramicist Zhanna Rossypchuk (Жанна Россипчук) of Ceramystery. She hand sculpts, hand paints and then fires each piece by hand, using the ancient technique of “milk firing,” where the pottery is covered with high-fat milk, then baked in the kiln.
This sculpture functions as a gentle rattle that can be used for shamanic work, meditation and magic with a soft soothing sound. Place this beautiful unique sculpture on your altar to invite fertility, honor your ancient ancestors, the great mother, or the old goddesses. She will bless your home with abundance.
Each sculpture is a unique and handmade work of art and no two are exactly alike.
