15/25.- Malta, Mother Goddess at Tarxien temples


What is typical of the Maltese temple culture is the gorgeous "Mother Goddess of Fertility" represented in statuettes and figurines in the islands temples.

A colossal seated "Mother Goddess" statue, 2 meters high, was discovered in the vestibule of the Tarxien temple complex. The original stone sculptures are preserved in the National Museum of Archeology in Valletta. Here you can see a copy placed in site in the Tarxien temple.
