In the 1970's, when Judy Chicago was conducting research for The Dinner Party, she became fascinated by her discovery of early goddess-worshiping cultures. Chicago incorporated many symbols from these societies into the early plates on The Dinner Party table, crafting a series of tiny goddess images for the surface of the Fertile Goddess runner and also, for an edition of porcelain goddesses that were used for fund-raising purposes. This Goddess Figure soap celebrates the feminine divine and the recent reappearance of feminist consciousness and a resurgence in female activism. Created in a limited edition of 500, this lavender soap is handmade in Turkey. Measures 4.25 x 1.75 x 1 in.
