The Crescent-Crowned Goddess is a classic image of the feminine divine power on earth. Our statue is designed in the form of a herm, which in ancient times was a sacred object of stone. Over the course of time the sacred herm stone gradually evolved into the form of a god or goddess. This herm of the crescent-crowned goddess captures her rustic character and honors the ancestor connection to this ancient pagan goddess-form. The base of the Crescent-Crowned Goddess statue features the words “I evoke the dark sacred night.” This denotes the lunar nature of the goddess, which is at the core of many feminine deities of pre-Christian European paganism. This primal and rooted nature makes our statue the perfect choice to use as a representation of your venerated goddess or personal patroness. The crescent-crowned goddess concept is featured prominently in pagan religion. Such deities are linked to nature religion themes as well as to Celestial and Underworld natures.
