Primordial Goddess

Most early civilizations were matriarchal, and in almost all ancient religions, the feminine principle was seen as the fundamental cosmic force. This female creative energy is embodied in the Primordial Goddess plate which symbolizes the universal female principle. The plate’s design depicts an undeveloped butterfly form with a volcanic center and wings not yet evolved from a flesh/rock substance. Its center is dark and molten, signifying the primal vagina and the sacred vessel, source of all life energy.
