Asherah Tree Goddess

David Hostetler - Nantucket, MA
Bronze - 6.7’ x 3.3’ x 3.3’

Over David Hostetler’s 68-year career, he was continuously searching for the nature of woman through goddess archetypes. To Hostetler, the goddess represents the all-encompassing power of woman, the manifestation of humanity as a part of nature, and is an image that all genders can embrace. Asherah is an ancient goddess, embodied by Hostetler through wood carving. Hostetler believed that Asherah represents empowerment, strength, and is a larger metaphor for earth as a living entity.
