The Queen of the Night

” is an old Babylonian carving (1800-1750 BC) From southern Iraq.
The figure might be:
1) the Goddess Ishtar, Mesopotamian Goddess of sexual love as well as war, OR
2) Ishtar’s sister and rival, a Goddess Ereshkigal who ruled on the Underworld, OR
3) The demoness Lilitu, known which are Bible as Lilith.

Checks confirm that the ‘Queen of the Night’ relief was made among 1765 and 1845 BC.

Location:  The British Museum ( It’s worth visiting!) I used to be alone but i spent greater than 6 hours need to know around in its amazing corridors and  galleries.
Individuals don’t waste all of your time in Harrods and on the Laduree, expend a while right here! 😉
