Inanna of Sumer
Illuminated Glass Mosaic 39.5" x 21" x
The goddess Inanna is the subject of this work, the second
in a Goddess
series. She is a Goddess of lust, of war, beer and bread. At the height
of Her power, she was the chief goddess in the Sumerian pantheon, She
who wrestled laws and civilization from the gods for Her people. Inanna
was a lusty goddess, known for going to the local tavern and picking up
a lusty young man to sport with. Also, Inanna's descent into the
Underworld, and Her return, give to us the concept of an immortal soul.
Inanna was a very important figure in the Epic of Gilgamesh. This
mosaic lamp lights the way for the modern soul, as She did for the
ancient humans in Sumer.
