Sardinia has a beautiful overabundance of symbols dotted throughout the island. There remains very little written data on the history of symbolism in Sardinia; I couldn’t find any information on this symbol, anywhere on the internet!
So, I sent the photo to a trusted friend and this is what he said “The stele was found at the foot of the pyramid or ziggurat – “Monte d’Accoddi,” the north side, in 1979. There is only an interpretation that it could be a female deity but nothing certain as to its purpose. The original is in the museum at Sassari.”
She remains a mystery, this beautiful and interesting deity.
A special thanks to Tharros.info for the trusted explanation of this symbol.
I wish there was more concrete evidence of the life the islanders lived eons ago. I wish I could step back in time and witness Sardinia’s future in the making. I wish to run with wild horses over the range of Gennargentu.
This is my response to the Weekly Travel Theme: Symbol.
