time traveling
Throwback Thursday
(I've had all these references ready in a draft since July something when, having returned to feminist texts on art from the seventies, I was thinking about a new blog post. Real life intervened and it never got constructed, so, on the heels of the horrific current world news, here it is if you wish to wrap your head around the topic.)

Once upon a time, humanity had a mother...
"A view of the culture, religious beliefs, symbolism and mythology of the prehistoric, pre-patriarchal cultures of Old Europe, who revered and celebrated the Great Goddess of Life, Death, and Regeneration in all her many forms, of plants, of stone, of animals and humans, by the scholar who has made the exploration of these cultures her life work."

(one hour and forty three minutes)

Marija Gimbutas was a Lithuanian-American archeologist known for her research into the Neolithic and Bronze Age cultures of Old Europe. Her works published between 1946 and 1971 introduced new views by combining traditional spadework with linguistics and mythological interpretation."  Stunning Film:
