Minoan Bee Goddess

A figure of a Minoan Goddess in the shape of a bee,* one of several portrayals found in the art and religious artifacts of ancient Minoan culture.

These artifacts are assumed to be related to the local Mother Goddess cult, but very little is known about Minoan religion.

*Or, a representation of the Melissae (bees), the priestesses of the cult.
