Myths, legends & historical dolls
Inanna – Morning Star
I chose the goddess Inanna (also known as Ishtar or Astarte and many other names), queen of heaven, goddess of sexual love, fertility and war.
I spent a lot of time researching for make a good dress for her (rules of contest don’t let me make her naked, but this was not my idea, I wanted a dress), inspired by the murals and rests with her image. I also focused in her role as the morning star, her sybol is the an eight-pointed star or a rosette, you can see on both versions. In the fullbody doll you can see her with all her glory (and more war-like dress) and some atributes, a horned headress, the lions (they look horrible, but they are inspired by sumerian art, make realistic lions is boring! [link] ), the knot…
And… My entry for the mythology pageant. [link]
Bases used: both my own, Equidna for fullbody and Venux for portrait (modified) wings, and mini-lions, hand painted by me
The doll is better in a dark background, like the contest site. I had no time for dolling anything better for the contest, I have a very important exam soon!!! >__<
