(Equinox art) Inanna by Lydia Ruyle

LR Inanna

Inanna is Queen of Earth and Heaven. She is a virgin goddess who carries within herself her own fertilizing power. Her symbols are the caduceus and the doubleheaded axe. She stands between her sacred knot bundles at the doorway between worlds. As the holder of the me, the Sumerian tablets of the law, Inanna incarnates the principle of justice. The Sumerians invented cuneiform writing, temples with a priesthood and the city-state. They called themselves the black or dark headed people.
