I was so pleased and flattered when Daily Art asked me to write an article about goddess gifs, a series of prehistoric female statues shaking it. I don’t usually write about prehistoric art, so this piece was definitely a new challenge. Since they’re so old, we really don’t know much for sure about the cultures that made them or how the statues might have fit into social and religious customs. Despite the current scarcity of information, this would be a fascinating topic to explore further.
