Allatum by GENZOMAN Allatum by GENZOMAN
Allatum (Also knowed as Allatu, Allat, etc.) is an underworld goddess worshipped by western Semitic peoples, including the Carthaginians. She is modelled on the Mesopotamian goddess Ereshkigal and may equate with the Canaanite goddess Arsay.

The queen of the underworld, Chaldean legend tells us that Allat had solely rulled in the hell. Once, other gods invited her to the party that they had organised in the heaven. Due to her photophobia she refused, and sent a messenger, Namtar, her servant. His behaviour had infuriated Anu and Ea, and their anger was turned against his mistress. They sent Nergal to punish her. He pulled the queen by her hair from the throne, in order to decapitate her, but her prayers for mercy stopped him, and Nergal had made Allat her wife.

Other legends make her a sister of Astarte.

(To Anu and Ea) Dude, I know you two were really dead set on the biggest bitchin' party in the cosmos, but isn't that a little extreme with the decapitation?

Stunningly beautiful creation. Bloody well done!!: Perhaps the sexiest version of Ereshkigal/Allatu I've seen yet--she's obviously stolen all of inana's/ishtar's sexy mojo (or its female equivalent)!!!

The two strands of hair covering her breasts look excessively unnatural. They seem to betray the movement you canptured so well in the rest of the piece. I understand why you put them there, they just don't really make sense.

i have to say, i love the hat! I keep seeing that around in random places on witches and sorceresses. The most notable of these is YuGiOh's Dark Magician Girl, but, if you know, did they originate it? or did it come from somewhere else? just curious if you happen to know
