Surrounded by members of the animal kingdom, the Goddess displays her role in supporting life on earth. Her kinship with animal totems shows she is a driving force for fertility in the natural world and able to assume animal form herself.
Her lions link Her with an arc of Great Goddesses, from Sekmet to href=""http://www.sacredsource.com/departments.asp?dept=41"">Lilith, Cybele, Anahita, across to Durga.
Her upward and downward facing rabbits show the union of opposites and the beginning of the spiral of life.
