The Bible says hilltop shrines and temples were built for Asherah. The people performed wine pouring and breadmaking rituals in her honor. They burned incense to her.
She was wildly popular, as was her spouse Yahweh / El. The Israelites honored them both, in sacred union.
This bronze Asherah figurine was made using an ancient mold discovered at Nahariyeh, Israel. She was mass produced so every hilltop shrine & household shrine could have her.
