My work (collage) captures Inanna, the ancient Sumerian goddess of fertility, love, and procreation. She is known as Ishtar in the Akkadian and Assyrian civilizations. Inanna is present in the middle of the picture surrounded by various women.

In a way, all these women are connected timelessly. Power is hidden in their smiles, looks, and gestures. Even the smallest and simplest actions have an enormous amount of strength. Through the ages, Women always were considered less than men and till the present day, a lot of individuals still follow and encourage this concept. We reached an era where we women can express ourselves and stand up for the fearless creatures we are. Women can be and will be equal to men. They are thinkers, believers, and doers. And this is the thing that makes this world worth living in.
