AriadneHere she is, at last, big busted, curvy, with well-girdled waist. The face and hair style are from the frescoes of Queens founds at Knossos. The blouse and skirt are taken from the “Snake Goddess” figures, also found at Knossos.

She holds aloft two olive branches, ready to bind them with her golden thread, into a crown for a worthy king. Around her neck are two snakes, alluding to her relationship with Asasara. Between her breasts, the golden thread has been looped into the sacred knot work.

I’m still quibbling with myself about the skirt, and whether it should have more detailing.

The color scheme, including purple and green, connects her to Dionysos and his vineyard.
