Gaia Base Card Art - Lynne Anderson by Pernastudios
Like many paintings through the ages, this image of a Greek goddess takes the opportunity to get her waps out for the viewer’s enjoyment. So that’s dull, and ordinarily I wouldn’t have bothered to share this, but what interested me about this particular image is the goddess’ “horns” - if you look closely, they’re actually flowering branches. That’s unusual and intriguing.
"Horned goddesses" turn up from time to time in modern imagery. Do they have a gendered meaning? Or do their horns simply signify what the Horned God’s do - power?
