Poor little Minoan Goddess of the Bees! She wasn’t being at all well served!
This morning, I received an email, and a pm, from someone who was right ticked off with a terrible photo that was up on my website.
It was a tiny photo of my knitted Minoan Goddess of the Bees.
So, I spent the day, not only re-doing the photo, but building a beautiful new pdf of the knitting pattern for the Minoan Goddess of the Bees.
She looks lovely now!
Many years ago, I was reading a book about ancient Greece.
There were a couple of tiny drawings of little figures that were engraved on pottery and furniture from Crete about 1700 BCE.
I fell in love with the tiny images and have been working with them ever since.
They were called, ‘Minoan Dewdrop or Bee Goddesses’ sacred to the goddess, Persephone.
They are known as ‘Melisae’.
