Cave of the Mothers

This photo is of Olivia Robertson on her 93rd birthday (in 2010), next to the "Shrine of the Daughter of Gaia of the New Aeon".  This is located in the Cave of the Mothers at the Foundation Center Temple.  Olivia's painting of "The Three Mothers" is directly behind her. (photo copyright Minette Quick)
From the "Guide to Clonegal Castle" by Lawrence Durdin-Robertson:
"Now it is the Chapel of the Mothers, used for initiations. Its barrel vaulted roof serves to represent the womb. Facing the door is the Great Mother, in a modernistic style, and on the wall to its right is a West African Mother Goddess mask. This Chapel also, contains many animal, vegetable and mineral figures made by members, representing the realms of Nature in the Great Mother's womb."
