Aug 2013: My goddess of the night

She is my goddess. One of my old girlfriends, and believe you me, I have a few scattered around the world. A sailor and all that. From the first time I saw her, I fell in love with her and worshipped her from afar.

there’s much more detail on this page of hers. Funny story, she was originally offered to the British Museum as a sale but it declined in 1935. And then she finally found a home in the Museum in 2003 for 1.5m…

We have no idea where she came from, from what age, and there are quite a lot of debates about what or who she represents. But I will just say that she is a goddess of the Night. And leave you to admire her beauty in the following photographs
