ANCIENT WOMEN & HORNED GODESS



Horned Elamite goddess

Horned Goddesses - original PAN 
Pan as horned goddess is so old that one can hardly attach time to her. She appears all over the world, on all continents and it is really easy to figure horns out. Fem fertility, ability to create and procreate flesh and soul is guided with Moon, well obviously...but it was not just human life, Moon regulates crops, animals, woods, rivers and seas. Moon is only natural clock in the sky so naturaly with its Crescents or Horns 13 perfect Lunar fases troughout the year was a number attached to ancient goddess.
For those that do not know prehistoric world fact is that men DID NOT exist. Neither male animals, findings show exclusively fem bones. All figures are boobed. NO PENIS.
On a scale of 1 to 100 men exist last minute. And question is what else lays burried or in draws and cabinets of HIS-Storians.
Fem was parthenogenetic and still is.


Horns in living traditions from all over the world

DEMONS & MONSTERS


Demon Godess = de Moon ed = power taken away from her
Monster = Moon and Stars
ancient way man called women; my Moon and all the stars

Horns are representatives of the Moon and 13 lunar-months troughout the year. 
In christianity 13 is sacrificed and old Babylonian name for Moon was a SIN and today that is well - sin!
Also usage of lunar as looney is a-not-her form of verbal abuse of women.
Do I have to mention that all life on Earth (trough female fertility periods) and Water is governed by Moon and not Sun.



Deer horns use to represent tree of life
Goat horns Cornucopia or horn of plenty
Cow horns represent Moon
Ram horns are usually sign that Goddess Earth is pregnant.

A-NOT-HER WAY TO DEMONISE LIFE GIVER;
IT STARTED IN HINDU RELIGION UNTIL WOMEN HAVE BEEN KICKED OUT OF EVERY TEMPLE IN THE WORLD.
EACH WOMAN IS A STAR GATE AND A PORTAL WHERE ALL FLESH AND SOUL COMES TO LIFE.

G=H so Gammadi=Hammadi
as in Nag Hammadi library-gnostic scriptures
so the CODED meaning of Nag Hammadi is Nagging Women!!!
don't you see the Misogyny of the system we are living in?


Magna Mater - first left


Nowa mask from the women's society (Bundu or Sande), Sierra Leone. These are usually identified as Sowei masks, not sure what is the difference. "The masks also represent the sprits of the waters attracted by the shape of the helmet, and the neck folds symbolize the ripple effect as the spirits come up out of the waters."


Bijagos womanhood ceremony regalia doctored to fb "community standards." Bijagos Islands on the western coast of Guinée-Bissau. As i was saying before i was so rudely interrupted, West Africa has a great many of these horned women, often in women's initiation ceremonies or other rites of female sodalities.


from the north British town of Cilurnum, Chesters. She holds a distaff and is wearing archaic style of fringed cape; in fact the whole image has a very ancient flavor to it, even though it dates to the period after Roman conquest.


Gaulish bronze, from Musée Bargoin, Clermont, France. 2nd century CE or thereabouts. Whatever objects she's holding aren't really visible.



horned Kati women's dance headdress, from one of the Kalasha peoples. This one is from Nuristan, NE Afghanistan. The birth of a four-horned goat was regarded as a very auspicious omen, but there's more to this: the mountain goat goddess is extremely ancient in west/central Asia, including among the Kalasha.


Gaulish goddess with antlers from Doubs, France, circa 2nd century CE.


a seal from eastern Iran, 2500-2300 bce, shows a horned, animal-headed Goddess wielding snakes in both hands rising above an altar laid by two women who are making ceremony. Known as the Rosen Seal, from what some call the Marhashi culture after a contemporary Mesopotamian name for this region.

Goddess of the Jiroft culture, central Iran, later 3rd millennium. To those who will quibble about her femaleness, she has the same rampant snakes emerging from her shoulders as the goddess of the Marhashi seals in eastern Iran, and note beardlessness. Just muscular!

dated to 2600-2350 bce, Sumeria, Mesopotamia; Early Dynastic lll




Luristan, in the Zagros mountains of western Iran, has loads of horned goddesses like this bronze horse fitting (the hole for thread through leather strip). They usually are flanked by or hold or shapeshift into various animals.


Ashtart Karnayim, the horned Astarte, a Canaanite mold and bronze casting. The bible has a place named after her, in Amos 6:13, in what is now northern Jordan.

Edomite goddess from what is now southern Jordan. Her femaleness is not just my opinion btw. This is another place whose fascinating archaeology is hugely overlooked, with some important female archaeology. I don't have the cite handy, but Genesis lists the names of several Arab female chieftains for this region.


Etruscan goat-horned goddess, possibly representing Uni, the forerunner of Juno. Among the many aspects of Roman Juno is the powerful goat-horned Juno Sospita or Juno Caprotina. Note similarity of her taile-lunar-shaped headdress to Russian folk headdress. Antefix, 4th c. bce, Tuscany


Juno Sospita Juno is Baphomet, Etruscan Godess JuturnaThis is a serrate denarius struck at mint of Rome in 79 BCE, under the authority of moneyer Lucius Papius Celsus. The CCX┴VI is a control mark. Most "Dated" Republican & Imperial Roman coins usually refer to Tribunician powers (Tribunicia Potestas) or Consular terms.

The serration is said to have been there to prevent counterfeiting, although surviving forgeries of such coins attest to the fact that while it was harder to achieve, it certainly was not impossible.

Queen Tiye in the Double Feather headdress with horned disk, 
attribute of HetHeru (Hathor) and Auset (Isis). 
Queens of the 18th dynasty on wear the double feathers 
in their role as royal priestess.
PRIESTESS was equivalent to what we consider as Royalty today.
Besides title Faraoh is made up word, real word is PER-'O' 
(uncertain pronaun of the last symbol)


ancient petroglyph at Wadi Tillizahen, in the Messak Setaffet of SW Libya. She has horns and instead of a face, double vulture heads (or so i surmise). Deeply grooved petroglyphs like this are typical of the most ancient Saharan rock art, many thousands of years bce; the animal art in particular dates to as early as 12,000-8000 bce.

Early dynastic goddess Bat (later Hathor) from top of the Narmer Palette. Already HetHeru is in her classic form, with cow horns and ears, and the frontal face that is unique to her and Bes in Kemetic iconography.

the Lady of Aouanrhet in the Tassili-n
-Ajjer of southern Algeria, one of the greatest rock art galleries in the world. Some interplay between horns and lunar crescent; white dots stream from a rectangular shape above her head (some interpret it as clouds and rain) and the white dots also run along her breasts, shoulders, and belly. I've remarked before on these lines of dots in other African images of ancestors/goddesses, from some of the ceramic sculptures at Nok in northern Nigeria to the monumental stone women of southern Ethiopia. They seem to represent the flow of vital essence in the breasts of ancestral women, a power that women may have called up in rituals of painting-up or in cicatrization or tattooing.

Woman with horns and animal head, hooves, tails dances with (an also horned) tiger. Carved seal from Mohenjo-Daro, Indus Valley, Sindh, Pakistan. Circa 2600-2300 bce. Featured in the Woman Shaman 
Manchu shaman (and here the word is Native, from one of the Tungusic-speaking peoples of NE Asia), possibly a representation of Nishan Shaman with her drum. She wears an antlered headdress which also incorporates peaked panels from central Asian Buddhist cultures (Tibet, Mongolia) and a shaman's robe with the classic leather streamers. More beaded streamers hang from her cap and along the sides of her face.




Bird-headed woman wearing ritual ornaments on a Cretan seal from Zagros. 
In Hittite mythology, Illuyanka was a serpentine dragon slain by Tarhunt, the Hittite incarnation of the Hurrian god of sky and storm.

The twisting body of the snake is depicted in undulating lines with human figures sliding along.

Museum of Anatolian Civilizations, Ankara, Turkey.

Phoenician name of Sidqimilk horned goddess
and a female wearing a Brygian/Phrygian helmet on the other side.

Stonehenge

The cremated remains of 14 women have been discovered at Stonehenge, challenging prevailing perceptions about the prehistoric monument. A recent excavation of “Aubrey Hole 7”—one of 56 pits dug outside of the iconic circle of stones—uncovered the bodies of nine men and 14 women, who were buried between 3100 BCE and 2140 BCE. Long bone pins, believed to be hairpins, were also unearthed during the excavation.
"Archaeologists believe that anyone buried at Stonehenge enjoyed elevated social status — as religious and political leaders, members of prominent families, possessors of special skills — and so the new discovery calls for a re-examination of the roles of women during the late neolithic period. “The archaeology now shows that as far as the burials go, women were as prominent there as men,” said archaeologist Mike Pitts, editor of British Archaeology and author of the book Hengeworld. “ This contrasts with the earlier burial mounds, where men seem to be more prominent.
