This image is an exact restored replica of the original Snake Goddess image found in Knossos, Crete, by Arthur Evans around the turn of the last century. The original was made of faience around 15 inches tall. There was a second figure, also of a snake goddess or perhaps a priestess, found together in an area of the excavation that Evans called the Triple Shrine. These images date from around 1500 BCE-just prior to the explosion of the volcano Thera and the subsequent earthquakes that wrecked the temple at Knossos.
