Dancing Goddesses

A project by Nina Paley

Created by Nina Paley, cartoonist, animator and free culture activist, the dancing goddesses are a collection of animated goddess gifs, that are equal parts powerful, mesmerizing and sexual. Nina clearly doesn’t lack in a good sense of humor by captioning, for example, one trio of her art, “3 limber stiff nudes.” The goddesses are characterized by boxy bodices, with elongated necks and arms folded into the chest or across the waist. They will be included in Nina’s upcoming film, Seder-Masochism, which is centered around the Jewish holiday of Passover. One of the funnest scenes of the film was published by the author as You gotta believe, or the name of the song by Norman Whitfield, sung by the Pointer Sisters.

Born in Urbana, Illinois, from a Jewish family, Nina is an atheist. She has been especially critical of Judaism and considers it a form of indoctrination and exploitation. She’s also openly childfree, a position she actively promotes and encourages others to adopt.

  1. Can you provide the names and the country of origin for some of these fertility goddess in the film? Because I think some of them were found in Syria. I would like to make sure,.. I’m Syrian that’s why I’m interested.
    Thank you!
