The work of contemporary visual artists, activists, poets and performers has paralleled the resurgence of interest in ancient symbols and cultures of the goddess. These artists, who intuitively seek to articulate long-obscured concepts of women and divinity, are able to interpret the ancient past to inspire new generations.
