    I was fortunate to visit Berlin and see one of the things I stared at in history books as a young girl. The Ishtar gate is an imposing Babylonian structure that inspires awe and appreciation.

      Ishtar- her gates at the Berlin Museum. She is one of the Goddesses in the Epic of Gilgamesh, upcomming Lumen Arts Audio Book. I have set up the beginnings of a FB page with store. We still have another few days in production- always takes longer than one thinks. In the meantime, think about how snazzy this little number would look in your bathroom....

      The Ishtar Gate at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin. This is a reconstruction of the entry gate to ancient Babylon; it always leaves me in awe. I wish I could see it in person.

      The Ishtar Gate of Babylon was built during the reign of King Nebuchadnezzar II (604- 562 BC). The foundations of the gate were discovered between 1899 and 1914, including numerous glazed bricks and unglazed figures. The entire Ishtar Gate was reconstructed to a height of 47 feet and now resides at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin.
