Blending theory, criticism, and ritual, reveals the foundations of the ancient tradition of "matriarchal art," and shows how that tradition flourishes in the works of major contemporary women artists and in contemporary women's spirituality.

The Dancing Goddess presents a radical definition of art, and brings forth a new holistic view of the person and society, art and spirituality. A thoroughly founded, comprehensive interpretation that combines clear thinking, knowledge, and poetic vision. --Ursula Pfafflin, Christian Theological Seminary
