Portrait of a Goddess No. 1



Portrait of a Goddess No. 1 - Available now in my Etsy shop.

Astarte, the ancient goddess of fertility, motherhood and war. According to legend Astarte descended to earth as a fiery star. The Phoenicians portrayed Astarte with cow horns, representing fertility. The Assyrians and Babylonians pictured her holding child. Mother of the Universe, giver of all live on Earth. She ruled all spirits of the dead residing in heaven visible from earth as stars; hence came her name Astroarche, "Queen of the Stars."

Hand formed goddess figure - 7 inches - artist signature, LVNA.
