Innana Ishtar

Innana Ishtar

Magdalene by Signorelli

Magdala by Signorelli

Inanna carried a jar, too.
See how similar her posture is to Magdalene’s. The right arm.
And each dress is pulled up revealing feet in just the same way.
These depictions are 3000 years apart in time, yet so alike.

Both these anointed a dying bridegroom and later resurrected him.  In a garden.
