In neo-Pagan witchcraft the God and Goddess are the divine forces and the very essence of the craft, they are the Great Father and Great Mother whose limitless energy brings forth all life. They embody the living biosphere of the planet and the forces of the elements; they are the creators and destroyers. She, The Goddess, is the Queen of Heaven, she is the moon, the source of magical power; she is emotion, intuition and the pyschic faculty. He, The God, is the sun, the source of masculine energy; he is the raw force, wisdom and law.

Ixchel Statue

Ixchel from the Island of Women.

In the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula sits an island with a temple dedicated to the goddess Ixchel. Local tradition holds that for many generations women have been making two pilgrimages to the temple in their life time. Once as a little girl they accompany their mother to the temple to make offerings, and again as a mother taking their own daughter to make offerings. In this way, continuity has been preserved throughout generations.

In this reproduction of a stone carving, Ixchel beckons us to approach her temple. Her headdress is decorated with fish tails and ocean waves. On her back she wears her water pot adorned with water snakes.

7.5 inches, black gold color resin.

Item #: TF153, Price: $43.00
