Inanna - Goddess of Goddesses by ShyloLove Inanna - Goddess of Goddesses by ShyloLove
Inanna, also known as Ishtar, Aphrodite, Isis, Venus..... is known as the Goddess of Love, War and Fertility.

There is a fantastic essay on Inanna here on DeviantART by :iconel-sharra-elswhere: : [link]

Stock credit list:

Lion harness made from heart necklace from: :iconsheona-stock:

Pyramid base from: :iconvioletdawson: [link]

Interesting temple building and wings [link] from: :iconunholy-stock:

3D background with waterfall and foliage from: :iconiws-stock:

Body model from: :iconjustalittleknotty: [link]

Lion by: :iconnefarostock: [link]
Lioness by: :icongwenna-stock: [link]

Sky background was drawn from this image [link] from: :iconjesuisautre:

The crown is a highly manipulated iStock photo purchase, ...... and I used Angelina Jolie's face....that is patently obvious I think! I have a pet theory that she may be Inanna incarnate...or at least a relative. ;-) If anyone knows how I can contact her to let her know about this use of her image.....let me know k? :D

The rest was either bought from stock providers, from the public domain or hand drawn. Hand drawn elements: Hair, staff thingy, makeup, harness parts and Inanna's 8 pointed star...

I cannot find where I found the bench to the left...if someone recognizes it please let me know!

I will most likely make edits to this. Would like to add arm bands and fix the skin by her hands between her fingers...

I would really appreciate comments and suggestions! :hug:

I think it is very interesting that there are space/air ships/airplanes in the background. It's something I have been interested in for awhile. I have a story that uses the gods of the Sumerian culture as a backdrop for a futuristic story.

Beautiful work...too bad you used Angelina Jolie..I would of liked to see your own creative interpretation of her face.

Excellent composition with a good set of choices (including the choice of face); I'll be looking at the rest of your gallery soon.

Inanna is the Mesopotamian goddess of fertility, life, agriculture and light. She was referred to as 'Queen of Heaven and Earth'.

oooh! I think she might be one of my very favourite goddesses!
Pity about the whole 21 foot tall thing though, lol!

Seriously though, I think this is an awesome job you have done. Very cool. And Angelina makes a perfect Inanna.
Isn't she also Venus and Aphrodite? I seem to remember that these are all essentially the same goddess in different cultures.
ShyloLove Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2008  Professional General Artist
Yep, Inanna was also Venus, Aphrodite, Ishtar and I believe she was also Isis as well. A goddess by many names depending on where she was landing her ship on the planet that day....and depending on what language the scribe who wrote about her spoke...

Glad you like!
