if you don't know the field work/books
of late dr marija gimbutas (ucla prof/archeologist) you're in for some moments
keenly perceived. i based 2 painting series on such moments. 'the civilization
of the goddess' [harper row] is more scholarship than i'm able to read/digest
except i know it in my gut. 'the language of the goddess' like the former
is full of images but more in symbolic arrangements. the art blows my mind--makes
all that has followed rather imitative. more than anything our true roots
before the post-matristic disaster in which we all try to survive. your library
can order them. they are now in large paperback. where she speaks of goddesses
i say female; where she speaks of neolithic i say paleoclay.
Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the men of old; seek what
i cannot seek what they sought. if i seek anything it's the humanity of the ancient wom cultures/attitudes expressed in their art and burials. the unity of all rather than a separation from nature which male 'cultures' brought about -- but only on 'paper' -- and on occasion try to put back together thru elaborate philosophies. one can see the separation in all the creation myths esp if one reads between the lines. eg, japanese mythology.
