Ereshkigal or Ishtar. Could be both sisters represented within The Burney Relief. It’s authenticity has been under debate since discovery in the 1930’s. Originating from Southern Iraq, though exact site is unknown. Noted for its high relief & large size, suggesting it was used as a cult relief. If authentic, it’s a very rare survival from that period.
