Example text

Life comes from their wombs; they nourish and certainly continue to care for beings, including those who do not come into the world and who quickly return to the earth (figs. 12–13). e. In First Testament anthropology, the womb (‫ )רחם‬is associated with compassion (‫)רחמים‬. It takes hold not only of women but also of men at times—and even God. 12 Fig. 12. Old Babylonian terracotta relief from Tell Asmar (ca. ). The relieved plate shows a goddess, pacing to the left, wearing a so-called tiered garment with a headdress that resembles the entry of a shrine or temple.

In biblical texts, breasts are also the expression of abundant food and life. The figurines were found in many houses. Occasionally, however, they were also placed in the darkness of the tomb with the dead as a final blessing. (Keel and Schroer, Schöpfung, fig. 75) Fig. 16 (right). ). Parts of small figurines of goddesses were found at three different places in Palestine/Israel. These seem to come from the very same molding press; the most complete one, from Revadim, is shown here. The naked goddess is depicted frontally, with long hair hanging down, a moon sickle or Ω necklace and bracelets.

The Ω sign is an important motif of this group. It could be a very simplified representation of the female uterus, which was simultaneously a symbol of birth and of mother goddesses. As the seals were frequently found in graves, and twice in the graves of children, it is likely that the motif was intended to guarantee protection of pregnant women, mothers, and children from these goddesses or to give the dead some of the security of the womb on their final journey. The Ω sign still seems to symbolize this maternal security for people in ancient Israel.
