An exquisitely detailed pendant necklace inspired by the winged goddess depicted on the Burney Relief, known as the Queen of the Night.

This necklace forms part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Feminine power: the divine to the demonic.

The necklace is made in the UK from sterling silver in the form of an abstract woman’s body, and features gold-plated feathered wings. The design is inspired by the Queen of the Night; a Mesopotamian plaque from the Old Babylonian period which dates to c.1750 BC. The fired clay relief depicts a winged woman, widely believed to represent the Mesopotamian goddess Inanna, later known as Ishtar, the Lady of Heaven. One of the oldest known named goddesses, Ishtar was associated with sexuality and gender identity. 

A unique and beautifully crafted gift.
