God-dess Art of Ancient Rome
The next several galleries feature Roman gods & goddesses associated with earth, love, and sexuality.
Roman deities were generally adapted from the Greek pantheon and represent similar ideals,
though in most cases, the Roman versions held less spiritual meaning.
The primal Roman Goddess was Terra Mater, literally 'Earth Mother'. Like her Greek counterpart, Gaia,
she was a fertility goddess closely associated with the land & nature.
