“Ötzis Göttin“ women’s project initiated by artist Ursula Beiler. Concrete, boulders.

“Ötzi’s Goddess”, located just outside Barteb‘ne Art Trail, is a work of art that immediately catches the eye. It's somehow different. The title was created in a joint project by women and is fairly expressive. A sculpture representing a giant woman with a crown of jagged stones. But how do Ötzi – The Iceman and a goddess fit together? What is behind the daring title? Questions that invite you to reflect whether history is really as it is taught. Or maybe it happened in a completely different way: The people of prehistoric times lived in close touch with nature in a matriarchal society. For them mountain nature was female, life-giving and therefore feminine and divine. It would mean that Ötzi believed in a Mother Goddess who helped him to be born again. So, was Ötzi on his way to the holy Similaun mountain when he died? Did he want to be buried up there, near Mother Mountain Nature? Questions that put the presumption of blood and thunder in the Neolithic in a completely different light. A modern answer is the sculpture of “Ötzi's Goddess”, created by women on a hill at the entrance to Niedertal side valley leading towards mythical Similaun.
