Baubo raised her skirt to Demeter who was grieving for her lost daughter Persephone. With this gesture, she reminded the goddess, as she reminds us, of the source of the continuing cycles of life.

In this Hellenistic statue from Alexandria, Egypt, the Baubo gesture is given by none other than Isis, the original "Mother of God." She wears a full-length gown, ceremonial headdress and tranquil smile. Her affirming stance says:

"We are the life-givers.... It is our vulvas, our wombs, that are the center. Never forget that!" 

[Private collection, 2nd century BCE.]
