SUMERIAN GODDESS INANNA 1850 BC Stone statue, quartzite-limestone composite, 7.5 inches (18.5 cm), 2" width at base (5.5 cm), with description. Reproduction of Goddess Inanna (Ishtar) statue from early 2nd millennium BC recovered from the ruins of the Palace of Zimri-Lim in the ancient Sumerian metropolis of Mari on the Syrian border. Inanna is the original Mesopotamian goddess who looms large in the myths and chronicles of ancient Sumeria. She was known as 'Ishtar' in the latter years of Akkadian-Assyrian rule and called Ahserah or Astarte by the early Canaanite and Hebrew tribes. In all the local languages and dialects her name means 'star,' recalling her true nature as a celestial goddess. According to the Sumerian Astronomical Chronicles, she once grew so bright she outshone the sun, resulting in a terrible cataclysm that brought civilisation to its knees. The goddess became both respected and feared as the feminine consort of the deity. Later generations romanticised and revered her as a mother-figure and she became known as "she who gave light to the heavens." SUumerian Temple Goddess SUumerian Temple Goddess

Description GODDESS ISHTAR-INANNA
1850 BC
 

Brown ochre stone statue, quartzite-limestone composite, 7.5 inches (18.5 cm), 2" width at base (5.5 cm), with description.

Reproduction of Goddess Inanna (known as Ishtar to later generations) from early 2nd millennium BC, recovered from the ruins of the temple in the Palace of Zimri-Lim in the ancient Sumerian city of Mari.


Inanna is the original Mesopotamian goddess who looms large in the myths and chronicles of ancient Sumeria. She was known as 'Ishtar' in the latter years of Akkadian-Assyrian rule and called Ahserah or Astarte by the early Canaanite and Hebrew tribes. In all the local languages and dialects her name means 'star,' recalling her true nature as a celestial goddess.

According to the Sumerian Chronicles, Ishtar once grew so bright she outshone the sun, resulting in a terrible cataclysm that brought civilisation to its knees. Thus, the goddess became both respected and feared as the feminine consort of the deity. Later generations romanticised her as a mother-figure and she became known as "She who gave light to the heavens." Payment
