Sumerian Goddess of love & war

Inanna was also associated with rain and storms and with the planet Venus. Her name is commonly derived from Nin-anna or “Queen of Heaven” from Sumerian the 3rd millennium BC. In some traditions, Inanna was said to be a granddaughter of the creator goddess Nammu, In fact, some early Assyriologists suggest that Inanna may have been originally a Proto-Euphratean.
Blake Ward’s sculptures evoke a dialogue between the internal and external self through his mimicry of classical technique depicted through contemporary means. In a literal sense, ANGEL INANNA is the junction of the divine and the humane, reminding viewers of Humanity that we are the likenesses of the gods we have created. The hollowed-out nature of the sculpture and the earthy blues of the bronze contribute a tactile, attainable sense to the goddess, as though she can be felt and understood by those who worship her.
