This statue originates from Egypt, and is dated to ca 4000 BCE, but the imagery is far older and common throughout Africa, Asia, and Europe. Snake Goddesses represent rebirth and renewal; as the snake sheds it skin, so the soul is reborn. They also represent sexuality, as seen in the curving, fluid nature of Her spine. 
Her bird head represents Her connection to heaven; this Goddess is both the Earth Mother, and the Queen of the Skies. Her snake body is of the maternal earth, and her bird head is wisdom and the sky. She raises her arms upwards in an act of worship, reminding us that Goddess and worshipper, human and divine, are one.
