Product Description

This pendant is an extremely accurate 3D scanned, 3D printed, and hand-cast reduction of the British Museum's 3,800 year-old baked-clay plaque called "the Queen of the Night", also known as "the Burney Relief."

Thought to be from southern Iraq, it depicts Ishtar, the Mesopotamian goddess of fertility, love, war, and sex. Rather than a mere pictorial representation of the goddess, the relief is more likely a symbol of her presence.

Standing on two male lions and flanked by two owls, Ishtar is nude, winged, with bird's talons, and crowned by a four-tiered headdress of horns. She's wearing a broad, beaded necklace above her breasts, and three bracelets on each wrist. She's holding a rod and ring symbolizing justice and her divinity. Babylonian deities knew how to accessorize.

I 3D scanned the original at the British Museum in 2012. The original plaque is almost twenty inches tall, but I've reduced it to just over 2 inches and set it in a bale so that you can wear this striking, nearly four millennia-old work of art as a pendant.
