THE MINOAN GODDESS

Civilization in Greece started with the Minoans on the island Crete. Little is known about their religion, but it seems they primarily worshiped goddesses. The goddess depicted holds snakes. We also find various images of acrobats jumping over bulls, which was likely part of a ritual. Around 1.400 BC the civilization disappeared for reasons yet unknown.
