The spiritual tradition to which this charming woman belongs is a very ancient one. Since before recorded time, the pregnant fertile mother has symbolized the promise of mankind's renewal and continuity. Plump and beautiful, this serene figure is sister to the mother goddesses of the neolithic age. Placed long ago in an ancient tomb, she would have offered the hope of rebirth in the afterlife. Perhaps no human image is more universal, more primal, than this. Its happy magic transcends the ages. - (PF.1328)
