Minoan snake goddess dangle


A premium quality hanging charm.

Handcrafted in Sterling silver 925 at our workshop in Athens.


The combination of elaborate clothes that leave the breasts completely bare, and “snake-wrangling” attracted considerable publicity, not to mention various fakes, and the smaller figure in particular remains a popular icon for Minoan art and religion, now also generally referred to as a “Snake Goddess”. But archaeologists have found few comparable images, and a snake goddess plays little part in current thinking about the cloudy topic of Minoan religion.

There are two Minoan snake princesses, this is the younger “snake goddess”, from the palace of Knossos.
