She the Flowering of Ishtar

Ishtar painting depicts the return of the goddess from the underworld through the intervention of Enki.

At the bottom of the picture is Ereshkigal in her domain the underworld, with her nightside companions.  On the right is Dumuzi Ishtars consort who walks into oblivion, the price for her return to life.

Damuzi is representative of the male condemned to a dark colorless underworld because he fails to acknowledge and express his feminine aspects and because of his cowardice in not assisting in Ishtar’s return  from the underworld.

Ishtar herself is the central figure with her totem animal the lioness.  Freed from the underworld and empowered by it she returns to her own realm in day.

The back ground of the painting is Enki, the light which brings release
