This idol is inspired by an ancient Babylonian sculpture known as Queen of the Night, housed at the British Museum in London. The true identity of the figure remains a mystery, but she is believed to depict Ereshkigal, Queen of Great Earth and Goddess of the Underworld; Ishtar/Inanna, the Goddess of Harlots; or the demon Lilith.
She is depicted nude, wearing only her jewelry and the horned headdress of divinity. Her wings grant her the freedom of the heavens, while her vulture-like talons connect her to the underworld.
She was originally represented perched upon the backs of lions, and flanked by staring owls. She is a wild woman, embracing her primal power, but she is also a figure of divine dignity. There is wisdom in her cryptic smile. She stands as goddess of empowered and emancipated femininity.
