The Snake Goddess is an exquisite example of the Minoan miniature sculpture. The two famous figurines of the Minoan earth goddess with the snakes, possibly represent a mother goddess and a daughter.The first 'Snake Goddess' figurines to be discovered, dating from approximately 1600 B.C, were found by the British archaeologist Arthur Evans in 1903, during excavation of Minoan archaeological sites in Crete, in the Palace of Knossos. The figurines are made of faience. This material symbolized in old Egypt the renewal of life.

The smallest of the two shows the goddess holding snakes in both of her raised hands. She wears the elaborate Minoan garment, a tight vest with sleeves, which bares her ample bosom, and a long skirt with seven horizontal tiers and a short apron. On her head, she wears an elaborate head-dress, on which a panther sits. Her triangular face is dominated by the huge expressive eyes. This figurine was found together with the another similar but larger figurine, and other precious objects.

The Snake Goddess figurine is exhibited at the Herakleion Archeological Museum in Crete.
