Abstract: 

The fertility goddesses are the female deities to watch over and promote productivity, pregnancy, and birth in many polytheistic cultures. Iranian cultures also have praised these goddesses since Neolithic age until Sassanid period, and have built shrines and statues to satisfy them. Plurality of fertility statues shows life rules from our ancestors’ standpoint, and their constant panic of nature rage.
To more easy classification, we have surveyed these objects in seven epochs: Neolithic, Chalcolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Achaemenidera, Seleucid-Parthian era, and Sassanidera. It should be mentioned that this approximate classification cannot represent style similarity.
