I had high hopes for this book as I always get inspired tapping into my feminine mystique and spirituality However, the artist s renditions of the goddesses such as Kuan Yin and Sumeria were not as ethereal as I would have liked I was distracted by such artistic blunders as the hands being out of proportion to the bodies and the ridiculous cartoony animals I have seen beautiful paintings and drawings in an art class So, as much as I was hoping for inspiration from this book, I just couldn t get [...]
Presents twenty six goddesses from around the world There s a good mix, so it s not just focused on the European cultures.Each goddess gets a one page description and a one page illustration Unfortunately for me, the copy I checked out from the library was missing a page So what I read was missing the illustration for Athena and the text for Benzai Ten A children s book, so light on the detail and meat of the stories myths.
Gorgeous book and beautifully illustrated Unlike the Goddess Tarot book by the same author, this book focuses on introducing the reader to the different divinites from different cultures, all over the world Awesome book, really fun to read and empowering, makes one believe in one s inner Goddess.
This book has THE MOST beautiful illustrations My Dad brought it home from one of his many business trips to Europe when I was a young girl It helped me learn about different cultures around the world And is one of my most prized books since it is now out of print.
This book is most useful for getting a rough sketch of the feminine divine in many different countries throughout the world I only wish it had gone in depth on each goddess but it does provide a jumping off place for deeper research elsewhere.
This books has short to medium length summaries of Goddess stories from many cultures It includes gorgeous full color illustrations by the author Although the intended audience is probably juvenile, it is one of my favorite Goddess books.
Kris Waldherr is a skilled artist, and her talent shows in this gorgeous volume that features 26 goddesses one for each letter of the alphabet with a myth each goddess is associated with The stories are informative, but the illustrations are what make the book.
loved it had so many interesting goddess I always wanted to read some Norse or Japanese mythology, this book gave me the opportunity
ang ganda the art was sublime, and the intersectionality was commendable.
