As Promised -- Dancing Goddesses!

The Divine Feminine loves Valentines Day too -- after all, who knows more about love and fertility than the Mother of All? So these ancient representations of the Goddess are having a big dance party to celebrate!

Shake your booty, Inanna, Queen of Heaven and Earth!


And you too, Minoan Snake Goddess!


The Goddess of Willendorf loves line dancing.


I'm not sure who these three are,
but smooth moves, ladies!


The Nile Goddess is as elegant as ever.


Hmm, the Great Goddess of Laussel is
hitting the wine pretty hard.


And the Celtic goddess Sheela-na-gig is
being as outrageous as ever, I see.


These Dancing Goddess gifs were created by Nina Paley and are found here and here. Special thanks to Cal of Calvin's Canadian Cave of Cool for letting me know about them!

I was enjoying the dances, but then Sheela-na-gig may have ruined it for me! =)

I can somehow hear loud thumping Dance Music in the background playing its mindless beat. Now if someone could set these up in one picture, all doing their own dance moves this would be priceless and could break the internet for 2019. My faves are the Willendorf sisters and the Snake Goddess. This is too awesome! Great job.

I have statues of the Goddess of Willendorf and a framed print of

Flossing really has become quite popular, hasn't it.

Harry Hamid said...

The Inanna one is fantastic and is now saved on my c-drive for future use.

The Sheela-na-gig one reminds me of the old PJ Harvey song that actually has a chorus of "Sheela-na-gig / You exhibitionist."

Missy George said...

Can’t stop laughing. Wonderful post thanks for starting my day off with a giggle!

Kirk said...

I think Sheela-na-gig may be the Goddess of Peep Booths.

jono said...

They are beautiful! And I love the way they move (me)!

lady M said...

Ol'Buzzard said...

It makes so much sense that a female be the god of humankind.

Ellie-TheForgottenMuse said...

Magaly Guerrero said...

Sheela-na-gig is glorious. Just glorious!

brewella deville said...

Getting a strong Ray Harryhausen vibe from those first two. Nice.

holli said...

TOTALLY stealing Lausel's dance moves!! Sheela-ma-gig is someone I would party with.

Professor Chaos said...

Those are awesome! I think you just invented a new goddess - Sheila na-GIF!

Guillaume said...

The first two are quite sexy, I must confess (I am an atheist). I wonder how Jesus managed to become so popular.

Barbara said...

Dang. It is amazing what people can create. These are all amazing. Kudos to the creator.

Jennifer said...

Awesome! I love them all!!

Jenn said...

Rommy said...

Sheela-na-gig should have come with a "Don't drink anything while scrolling" warning. Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. I love it.
