Goddess Symbols
and Sacred Objects
of Atalanta

Goddess symbols, individualized for each goddess, were incorporated into the worship of the ancient goddesses, were often worn as jewelry, and also used in the household decor as talismans to seek the goddesses special gifts, blessings, or protection.  A large number of goddess symbols have survived in statuary and other works of art.

Many of the goddess symbols come from the legends surrounding a specific goddess and were "characters" in her story. Other goddess symbols  were derived from the rituals used  in the ancient rites of worship of these pagan goddesses.

Atalanta  is often represented by symbols associated with her breathtaking independence. It's hardly surprizing that many of our cultural symbols of feminine cleverness and will power are derived from the ancient goddess symbols of Atalanta.
