Ishtar x Zion
. . .
This piece was special, really special. I have had a vision forming for about a year for an Ishtar/ Inanna portrait and I was waiting for something to spark it into life. Well a few weeks ago, through the magic of the internet I ran into Bekah Zion and knew this was going to be the beginnings of a great piece.
Ishtar also commonly followed under the name Inanna is in many ways a goddess embodying the strength and the power of the divine feminine. A pillar of sacred power, Love, graciousness, ferocity, seductiveness, allure, mystery, fertility, maternity, beauty and strength. She symbolises war, sex, justice and political power!
There are also references to higher consciousness, enlightenment and cyclical change and rejuvenation. 🌀🐍🌈 Many of Ishtar’s Sacred symbols are referenced in this piece, but this portrait also symbolises personal resilience and transformation in the emergence of ones own power, for my muse in this collaboration. I feel honoured to have worked on this piece with Bekah, for Bekah and for all the strong women and men that can be inspired by this piece.
