episode #63 female figures

Stories have been told that have entered the cultural heritage of a people about females figures. “Women are the Symbol of Life. The Maker of Unconditional Love. A woman is both Soft and Powerful. Practical and Spiritual. A Woman in her Essence is a Gift to the World. A Symbol of Strength and Freedom.” Some mythological female figures are documented in the written records and so are part of history. Typically female statues are symbols or muses such as Liberty, Freedom or Hope. And yet, each female figures have more than one persona, and as their personas changed, so did the judgments behind the presentation of them.
