Excavating Beyond the Male Gaze on Aphrodite’s Island #1 The Global Implications of the Cypriot Art of the Sacred Marriage

Investigation by Lisa Paul Streitfeld

Summary

Cyprus, often called Aphrodite’s island, is the birthplace of the Love Goddess, according to Greek mythology. There, in 1976, just two years after the island was split into a Greek part in the south and a Turkish part in the north, inscribing the division in its heart, an archaic statuette with male and female sexual signs was exhumed. Lisa Paul Streitfeld sees this as a sign that a higher unity, beyond gender, is in the making on this Mediterranean island.
