“The SONG of INANNA” recounts the original ancient myth of the Goddess Inanna, from 6000 years ago, and presents a Jungian Feminist analysis of it, relevant to modern times. The book includes a collection of my original artwork inspired by her stories.

A segment from the Introduction:
“This book was inspired by the ancient stories of Inanna, the great Sumerian Goddess of love and war, later known as Ishtar in Akkad and Anat in Canaan, who played a central role in the religions and popular consciousness of all ancient Middle Eastern people. Inanna’s stories were written on clay about 6 thousand years ago, found in Iraq in the last century andtranslated into English. They were written before the Bible, the Koran and the Greek myths, at a critical time in the history of civilization when Goddess spirituality and matriarchal societies were eradicated by patriarchal monotheism.
My images and ideas encircling Inanna’s mythology are the fruits of a decade of intense research and personal explorations of this remarkable eye-opening legacy that has been mostly buried and denied in modern history.
