The Three Mothers, curated by Holly Harper

This exhibit examines several examples of sculpture linked to the cult of the Mother Goddess. I was interested in exploring why these sculptures in both small and large scale were classified as Mother Goddesses. The essay and catalog entries are an attempt to organize and understand the concept of the Mother Goddess by studying the symbolism of their individual attributes, their varying regions of origin, and their basic formal qualities.
