Inanna/Ishtar was the Sumerian/Babylonian goddess of love, beauty, sex, desire, fertility, war, combat, and political power. She was associated with the planet Venus, much like the Greco Roman goddess Venus/Aphrodite. Artwork by: Gustave Moreau – Salome Dancing Before Herod, 1876
The Anunnaki are the gods depicted in Ancient Mesopotamian culture (Sumerian, Babylonian, Akkadian and Assyrian). They are descendants of the main supreme god, An. Their roles changed in different writings from being heavenly gods, to eventually serving as the seven judges of the Underworld.
