Inanna - Goddess of Goddesses by book-of-light Inanna - Goddess of Goddesses by book-of-light
Inanna, also known as Ishtar, Aphrodite, Isis, Venus..... is known as the Goddess of Love, War and Fertility.

There is a fantastic essay on Inanna here on DeviantART by :iconel-sharra-elswhere: : [link]

Stock credit list:

Lion harness made from heart necklace from: :iconsheona-stock:

Pyramid base from: :iconvioletdawson: [link]

Interesting temple building and wings [link] from: :iconunholy-stock:

3D background with waterfall and foliage from: :iconiws-stock:

Body model from: :iconjustalittleknotty: [link]

Lion by: :iconnefarostock: [link]
Lioness by: :icongwenna-stock: [link]

Sky background was drawn from this image [link] from: :iconjesuisautre:

The crown is a highly manipulated iStock photo purchase, ...... and I used Angelina Jolie's face....that is patently obvious I think! I have a pet theory that she may be Inanna incarnate...or at least a relative. ;-) If anyone knows how I can contact her to let her know about this use of her image.....let me know k? :D

The rest was either bought from stock providers, from the public domain or hand drawn. Hand drawn elements: Hair, staff thingy, makeup, harness parts and Inanna's 8 pointed star...

I cannot find where I found the bench to the left...if someone recognizes it please let me know!

I will most likely make edits to this. Would like to add arm bands and fix the skin by her hands between her fingers...

I would really appreciate comments and suggestions! :hug:

Excellent composition with a good set of choices (including the choice of face); I'll be looking at the rest of your gallery soon.

Inanna is the Mesopotamian goddess of fertility, life, agriculture and light. She was referred to as 'Queen of Heaven and Earth'.

You never cease to amaze me. That is Inanna. You used Angelina Jolie's face? Yeah, I think you made a good choice.
