Yup..the old girl (pictured here) is 6,500 YEARS OLD (doesn't look a day over 6,400!). The concept of "Mother Nature" comes to us from ancient myths and religions, dating as far back as 4500 B.C., making her over 6,500 years old. The obvious analogy of woman's life-giving and nourishing powers with those of the Earth led man to associate fertile womanhood with an idea of the motherhood of nature.
