About the Ebook
THE MASKS OF THE GODDESS was a collection of 35 "Temple Masks" created by artist Lauren Raine inspired by multi-cultural mythologies of Goddesses from around the world. Created in 1999 for the Spiral Dance in San Francisco, for almost 10 years the collection traveled throughout the U.S., used by choreographers, storytellers, mythologists and ritualists to celebrate the Divine Feminine, and to discover the Goddess Within. This beautiful book includes photographs of the masks and performances, stories, interviews, resources for women, and documentation of this historic community arts project.

I've been a visionary artist for over 30 years, specializing in community art projects, sacred masks, and visionary arts. I also teach the Art of the Mask. In 2007 I had a fellowship at the Alden Dow Creativity Center to pursue my community arts project "The Hands of the Spider Woman", based upon the Native American legend; in 2009 I will be continuing the project at the Henry Luce Center at Wesley Theological University. May we all become "Beautiful Weavers".
