With arms raised in blessing and surrounded by a nimbus of stars, this goddess was seen as the embodiment of the Eastern Star - Venus. She is based heavily on the mythology of Ishtar, worshipped as early as 4000 BCE in the area of present-day Iraq. The filigree is a working star chart similar to an astrolabe, an ancient device used to navigate and tell time. The points are referred to as flames, each indicating the position and name of a star. The zodiac ring, also positioned correctly, is known as the ecliptic. The text on this piece is inspired by the Hymns of Inanna and intended to invoke the divine feminine healing power of the Universe.
