Sardinia is a rebellious land, a wild force that helps you reconnect with nature.

Earth is one of Sardinia’s most important natural elements, the basis of survival, the mother of agriculture and pastoralism.

On the Island, the Earth has also been a great protagonist of legends and tales capable of stimulating the imagination of its inhabitants.

It was mainly the landscapes and megalithic stones that worked by wind, rain and, in some cases by men, awakened the imagination and curiosity of the local populations, thus becoming objects of worship.

Sardinia, land of fantastic creatures

William Butler Yeats wrote “The world is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our senses to sharpen.”

And that’s how in Sardinia, in addition to beautiful beaches and crystal clear sea, we encounter ancestral symbols and sacred stones, dolmens and menhirs, domus de janas, tombs of the giants and nuraghes.

Megalithic structures positioned according to popular tradition in places charged with magnetism that, in synergy with the nature surrounding them, still have something to say and teach to those who open themselves to listening and feeling.

In ancient times, these places were considered abodes of fantastic creatures, too small or too large to be called human, guardians of secrets, wisdom and immense riches.

Magical beings who showed themselves preferentially at night and who in their appearance maintained the right measure between the sacred and the profane, the divine and the damned, which allowed them the fame and glory of being the protagonists of legends and words charged with the respect that is accorded to those one fears and esteems.

The Mother Goddess

In addition to housing supernatural entities, in Sardinia, the Earth has always been seen and experienced as a deity.

In this regard, one of the most explicitly “artistic” productions of pre-Nuragic Sardinia is certainly represented by the “mother goddess” figurines.

These are small sculptures (on average they range from 10-15 cm in height, but there are also smaller and larger ones) depicting female figures.

The designation “mother goddess” derives from the context in which they were found, namely at burial sites, which has led scholars to speculate that such images may be a sacred representation of the physical and symbolic space in which the deceased is laid to rest.

The “Earth,” conceived as the “generator” of life and therefore as “mother,” in whose “womb” the deceased returns to be welcomed.

Sardinia, a land to be discovered
