The Mark of Cassiopeia LexiLine? Logo Fertility Goddess of Gimbutas
LexiLine - A Renaissance in Learning

The books of Marija Gimbutas
are indispensable for a study of human civilization.

This applies especially to her last major treatises

The Civilization of the Goddess
The Language of the Goddess

The figurine below from Gimbutas
has two zig-zag symbols
and a
beneath each of them
which are seen to symbolize fertility and rebirth
through the cocoon of mummification.

  The symbols are regarded by Gimbutas
as a "precursor" to writing.

This figurine is currently dated
by mainstream archaeology
to ca. 5300 BC.


The figurine was found
at Passo di Corvo, near Foggia, Italy

In Italy we find a similar megalithic "symbol"
as marked by megalithic monuments.

Enrico Calzolari and Davide Gori call it
"the Mark of Cassiopeia"
since the shape is that of the brightest stars of that
modern constellation, and surely so also in ancient days.

The Mark of Cassiopeia
Marked by ancient Megalithic Monuments
(the graphic below)
as discovered by
Enrico Calzolari and Davide Gori



The discovery of the Mark of Cassiopeia
as an astronomical and/or geodetic mark
by Enrico Calzolari and Davide Gori
is formed by megalithic sites in Liguria, Italy,
and is the same "mark" as on the figurine,
which Gimbutas regarded to be a fertility symbol.

The butterflies
could be read as Indo-European e.g. Latvian Tauris,
"butterfly", seen as a symbol of rebirth and fertility
through the cocoon of mummification,
which may be what the ancients observed in nature
and later tried to duplicate
by mummification of humans and animals.

The stars of Cassiopeia
are found above Aries and
as general signs of fertility among the ancients.

In Indo-European e.g. Latvian,
the butterfly is called a

Among the Pharaohs,

was a protectress of women in childbirth.

In the Pharaonic Old Kingdom,
it was
who was "
the great goddess".

In astronomy,
was connected
with the "
northern" sky
and was known
as the
"mistress of the horizon"
the constellation which never sets,
as a sign for eternity,
and in ancient religions,
perhaps the idea of an everlasting soul.
