Mother of Living Nature by Adele Getty.”I am in the form of the immensity … the knower of the essence of things”: from the dawn of time humankind has instinctively perceived the supreme provider and protector, creator of all life on earth, as female. The Great Goddess, Mother Earth, is both womb and tomb of humanity – the sacred source of perpetual renewal. Though her cult has been ruthlessly suppressed and manipulated, she endures throughout the world as a powerful ancient memory, a living presence manifested in her myriad mythological and religious aspects, as Gaia and Cybele, Isis and Kali, Tara and the Virgin Mary. Today the sacred feminine is at last being redeemed and recognized as an achetypal ideal, symbolic of wholeness, strength and mystery.This book has 141 illustrations from all different cultures and times.
