Queen of Heaven Pendant front

Queen of Heaven Pendant back
Bronze Queen of Heaven Ishtar Pendant
1-7/8 inches high x 1.75 inches wide

With her 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 as on an astrolabe - an ancient device used to navigate and tell time. The points are referred to as flames and each indicates the position and name of a star and the zodiac ring, also positioned correctly, is known as the ecliptic.

The text on this piece was inspired by the Hymns of Inanna and intended to invoke universal divine feminine healing power.

Inscription around the bottom reads: "I am the radiant splendor of the starry night shining like jewels in the ever changing sky." The inner circle is inscribed with symbols of the zodiac.

Inanna:  Middle Eastern (Sumerian) Inventor of Civilization
The flowering of Sumeria, its temples, ordered cities, irrigated fields, birthplace of cuneiform writing and codes of law, and mastery of terra-cotta arts, all offer tribute to the first Great Goddess named by history. Bejeweled and serene, her chalice-shaped form was worshipped as early as 7000 BCE. Inanna represents love, marriage, sensuality, and fertility, but she also counts all gender-benders and prostitutes her own.

As early as 3500 B.C.E. Inanna was worshiped as the great Goddess of Sumeria. Also known as Queen of Heaven and Earth, Priestess of Heaven, Light of the World, First Daughter of the Moon, Righteous Justice, Holy Shepherdess, and Loud Thundering Storm. She was represented by many different images: the crescent moon, the morning and evening star, the lion, cow, dove, sparrow, scorpion and viper. Her appearance as the evening star also gave rise to her association with prostitutes as they both appeared at the same time during the evening hours.

Inanna is the Goddess of Fertility, grain and vine, the date, palm, cedar, sycamore, fig, olive and apple trees. Often these trees were planted near her temples. Bread made from wheat or barley, ground flour, wine, beer, and dates, was baked and placed on her altars. The fruits for the bread were harvested in special rituals and the baking of the breads, or "Cakes for the Queen of Heaven" celebrate nourishment from the Goddess. As Holy Shepherdess, she was the guardian of the domesticated animals, protectress of wild animals, and a team of lions drew Inanna's chariot across the heavens.

Inanna of Power, Goddess of Battle
. Just as she images fertility, the Great Goddess also serves as archetype of natural extremes: monsoon-like storms, great heat, earthquakes. Ancient clay inscriptions depict her raining down fire, mounted on a beast, and call her "devastatrix of the lands." Her powers explained earth-scourging catastrophes, and these aspects still live in the forms of Kali and Durga.

For Sumerians, battle was known as the dance of Inanna. She stands Amazon-like, rooted and erect, garbed as Warrior Queen, gesturing confidently with her lance of power.

The entrance to Inanna's sheepfold was the entrance to her womb from which all living things originated. Marked by a special symbolic vulva gate depicted as two bundles of reeds with curved ends, this symbol was often found in temples or on farms.

The Sacred Marriage, which took place at the beginning of the New Year, (The Spring Equinox) was the most important day in the Mesopotamian calendar.

It was at this time that Inanna wed her consort, Dumuzi and their union provided for the fertility of the crops in the fields. Inanna is well known from the many myths that tell of her exploits.

In the myth "Inanna and the God of Wisdom," we learn how Inanna, through her cunning and skill, won the sacred Sumerian tablets of Justice from Grandfather Enki. Our Links page has info on a new book called "Seven Dreams of Inanna."
