The Gift of the Goddess

prints and drawings


Silk Road House

1944 University Avenue - Berkeley

December 2015


The thousands of prehistoric figurines found by archaeology in many parts of the world are powerful expressions of what was a universal spirituality, linked to the Earth and the cycles of life. Their widespread presence suggests a culture of the Goddess.


In this exhibition Christopher Castle demonstrates his exploration of the hidden order of nature that Neolithic people of Old Europe experienced and honored through their art and rituals.


Castle focuses here on the feminine aspect of this earth integration. Through his prints and drawings based on Goddess figurines he explores ways to renew the respect for the earth that was once at the very center of a universal and perennial natural cosmology.

"Christopher Castle is a talented artist who uniquely combines his skills with a deep understanding of the spirit of place - the subtle vibrations that exist at sacred sites. He has traveled widely in Europe and the United States and has studied the cultures of Neolithic Europe. His art and writings explore the many layers of human consciousness and our connection to the Earth. Sacred sites were everywhere in ancient times; Christopher Castle's work awakens our sense of wonder and makes our planet seem sacred once more."

Marija Gimbutas, the late, former professor of Archaeology at UCLA, and author of

The Language of the Goddess and The Civilization of the Goddess.
