    perhaps you stumbled across daphnae being turned into a laurel tree. (or in england is it the…. larch?)

  • I figure she’s some sort of watery goddess…

    Actually a prehistoric image, a Mother Goddess, or often identified as “Bird Goddess.” This is from Wikipedia:

    “Bird Lady” a Neolithic Egyptian ceramic, Naganda IIa Predynastic 3500-3400 BCE, Brooklyn Museum

  • If you just paste the URL of the image into the comment, it should work. Or you can download the image and the use the image icon at the bottom of the commenting field to upload it into your comment.

    Yup, that does look like the statue. Maybe she’s a pigeon goddess!

    Thanks. Didn’t know what the symbol was for. Will figure out how it works.
