Shlain describes that Trypillian attitudes were similar to contemporary communities: “in the emerging civilizations, a mother Goddess was the principal deity: in Sumer she was Inanna, in Egypt she was Isis, in Canaan her name was Asherah, in Syria she was Astarte, in Greece, Demeter, in Cyprus, Aphrodite.
Passek, M. Biliashevkiyi, O. Spytssyn and V. Horodtsov are convinced that the highly developed culture of the Trypillians “came from the south across the Aegean Sea and the Sea of Marmara from the Asian coast, or across the Mediterranean Sea from Finikia of Egypt, as the ornamented ceramics suggest some oriental influence” (Susloparov, 2004).
