Sacred Source -Inanna of Power

Home Order

Inanna of Power Goddess of Battle. Just as she images fertility, the Great Goddess also serves as archetype of natural extremes: monsoon-like storms, great heat, earthquakes. Ancient clay inscriptions depict her raining down fire, mounted on a beast, and call her "devastatrix of the lands." Her chthonic powers become explanatory of earth-scourging catastrophes, and these aspects still live in the forms of Kali and Durga. For Sumerians, battle was known as the dance of Inanna. She stands Amazon-like, rooted and erect, garbed as Warrior Queen, gesturing confidently with her lance of power. The image comes from a cylinder seal. See Inanna of Fertility also.
