Everything old is new again.It looks just like all that trendy world-eco-feminine-earth mother-womenare*all*beautiful style afflicting every t-shirt, dress, and gift shop from Door County to Sedona.But it is quite lovely and modern.

My first thought was she is depicting a worshipper. Maybe it's my time in Pentecostal churches.The website notes they don't know if she is depicting a priestess, a mourner, or a dancer.

Especially given where it was found.Our modern understanding of dancer implies dance for its own sake, but I suspect this is a dancer with a purpose and meaning.
Jeeez. Amy Winehouse hasn't changed in 5000 years. Except her skin is worse.
