Polish Silesian Sleza Mountain: Mt Sleza - Mt Olympus of the Middle Europe

Polish Silesian Sleza Mountain, Mt Olympus of the Middle Europe

Mt Sleza  Silesian Sleza Mountain

Olimpia Szafranska 's 19-year-old singer Gate of Heaven fans jumping up and down in unison on Mt Sleza - Mt Olympus of the Middle Europe.In Greek mythology Mt Olympus was the home of the Twelve Olympian gods. One of them was Aphrodite (Venus), goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. Among them was also Artemis (Diana) the virgin, goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity and protector of young girls. Mt Olympus in Turkish is known as Samanat Evi – the dwelling of the celestians.

Aphrodite Hypolympidia - the Aphrodite venerated at the foothills of Mount Olympus found in the temple dedicated to the goddess, from the santuary of Isis; from the 2nd c. bC, the Isis cult began to resplace the Artemis cult. Note: index finger pointing, and Aphrodite (Venus), goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation, displaying the V sign. (V in Latin Virginitas, Victoria, in English Virginity, Victory, of course). Actually, the base was made ca. 3 centuries after the statue; the inscription mentions that the statue was commissioned by a freedwoman named Anthestia Iucunda in honor of the goddess and the Roman colonists who had settled in Dion, Greece. Note: According to the culture of death standards of sluttification and promiscuity, Aphrodite lagged far behind ladettes of nowadays: Aphrodite was a virgin bride on her disliked wedding night with deformed and ugly Hephaestus, and had "only" 9 extramarital divine and mortal consorts. Greece - the cradle of European civilization; the EU - its grave. Fine art phtotography by Zbigniew Halat

Silesian Towns

There are 256 towns in Silesia, out of them 16 are inhabitedby more than 100.000 people. How to identify a Silesian town? Searching the web one may find a lot of confusion resembling the confusion of tongues at the Tower of Babel. English-speaking people do not read strange characters of Polish, Czech or German alphabets, neither understand reasons why some web pages refer to not-existing names of Silesian towns.

Some of these non-existent names were invented by Hitler and his followers to erase native names of Slavic origin to the East from the Elbe (Laba) River

Below please find Silesian Towns' Names in English along with  Silesian Towns' Legal Names in Polish, Czech, German and Sorbian languages  (Sorbian is a West Slavonic language, like Polish and Czech ones, in use by native inhabitants of East Germany and recognized as legal language there).

The virgin Venus of  Silesia, neolithic, 4,000  years BC, clay, excavated in Raciborz, August 5, 2013 by Marek Aniola. Suggestive of possible neolithic cult of virginity in late adolescent females inhabiting what is now Polish Silesia.
The virgin Venus of Silesia, neolithic, 4,000 years BC, clay, excavated in Raciborz, August 5, 2013 by Marek Aniola Suggestive of possible neolithic cult of virginity in late adolescent females inhabiting what is now Polish Silesia. The medical assessment of developmental stage is clear: wide hips and remarkable space between thighs (the thigh gap) suggest that a model has reached her childbearing maturity but small perky breasts prove that she hadn't conceived yet. Thus the figurine can hardly be included to a vast collection of European Venuses celebrating their fertility with sagging breasts and abdominal skin. Certainly, no other reason than virginity cult, equivalent to the virginity until marriage religious rule of nowadays, could postpone impregnating postpubertal females 6,000 years ago.

 A statue with fish, goddess of water Slenza or Slezan Virgin with Fish. The symbolism of water has a universal undertone of purity and fertility.The latest archaeological interpretation emerged after discovery of the virgin Venus of Silesia, neolithic, 4,000 years BC, clay, excavated in Raciborz, August 5, 2013 suggestive of possible neolithic cult of virginity in late adolescent females who inhabited much of what is now Polish Silesia Slezan Virgin with Fish, Panna s Rybou, Jungfrau mit dem Fisch, almost breastless in spite of being of mature shape, carrying a huge fish, which definitely is a primordial symbol of fertility (and purity). The medical assessment of developmental stage was obvious to dr Burghart in 1736 and is the same now: a model has reached her childbearing maturity but her almost not existent mammary glands (exagerated by a sculptor lack of breasts in a woman purposely presented while naked from the the waist up, see dr Burghart's professional opinion) prove that she hadn't conceived yet. Thus the big size statue can hardly be included to a vast collection of small European Venuses celebrating their fertility with sagging breasts and abdominal skin. Certainly, no other reason than virginity cult, equivalent to the virginity until marriage religious rule of nowadays, could postpone impregnating postpubertal females ca 2,000 years ago.
