Masmiyeh plaque of Asherah as Vegetative Goddess

3b.9 Veg Asherah2x3
Vegetation was a matter of live or death in ancient cultures, your family lived or perished dependent upon a bountiful vegetation season. Blessings offered through the goddess were essential.

Proffering vegetation, the Hebrew Mother Goddess Asherah personifies the vital life forces of nature in her aspect as a Vegetative Prosperity Goddess on this clay plaque.

Stylistically similar to, and identified with, the Egyptian goddess Qds, this plaque is one of hundreds discovered in the Syro-Palestinian corridor.
This Masmiyeh plaque dates to ~1500-1150 BCE.
