When this elegant, very ancient sculpture was formed, the worship of the fertility goddess was already old beyond reckoning. We can imagine the quick hands of the artisan who formed it, working in the temple complex, and those of the person who gave it in return for the favor of Astarte. Now our hands rest where theirs did so long ago and suddenly we are linked by an unbroken chain through time. - (PF.0149)
