My rendition of the Persian goddess, Ishtar.
Ishtar is a goddess of fertility, love, war, and sex. In the Babylonian pantheon, she “was the divine personification of the planet Venus”.
Ishtar was above all associated with sexuality: her cult involved sacred prostitution; her holy city Uruk was called the “town of the sacred courtesans”; and she herself was the “courtesan of the gods”
