Details:

This sculptural composition is an assemblage reliquary shrine to Astarte, the Phoenician goddess of fertility, reproduction, sexuality, sacred love, sex and war.

She was associated with the moon and called the 'Mother of the Universe', giver of all life on Earth. She ruled all spirits of the dead residing in heaven, visible from earth as stars; hence came her name Astroarche - 'Queen of the Stars'. She was also called 'The Mother of Souls in Heaven'... the Moon surrounded by her star-children, to whom she gave their 'astral' bodies.

Associated symbols include two snakes and an 8-pointed star within a circle, thus indicating the planet Venus. Her hands are close together, forming the shape of a heart over her open vagina.

This piece is a hanging sculpture.
