Gordion, the town of Kybele
and Midas. In Gordion Alexander the Great cut the "Gordion Knot"
A barren landscape "at the end of the world".
Quite a few tumuli, that have not been excavated yet.
The tomb of King Midas
Absolutely precious and lovely
pieces. The Tree of Life - symbol of the Great Mother - and Her beasts. Later a
personified image replaced the Tree (under). LINK:
"The Lady and Her beasts".
few people know that the original name of Kybele was "Matar"
a precious Kybele
rare image of Dionysos taking refuge in the Maternal Flower. Similar to "Buddha in
the Lotus" and "Maitreya in the Cosmic Egg". LINK: Great Mother Buddhism
Midas was a Son/Lover of
Kybele, one of the successors to Dionysos. However, he was seduced by his newly acquired
power. He asked Dionysos to fulfill him a desire: to transform everything he touched into
gold. At first this seemed wonderful. As his food, drinks and daughter also became gold,
he realized his greed. Midas is the example of a "fallen Green Man"
knot I cut was the pledge to commit myself to "Healing the Planet"
