Inanna in the Dark Sea

by Aradia Lunabella

“Inanna as the moon is the life principle that seeks its own sacrifice and is reborn from its own darkness.”

This collage is symbolic as a part of the creative process, in which I’ve made a descent into my shadow self to access the energy where this piece is inspired from. That deep place feeds my work, and I return with this gift from Inanna. She is immanent and transcendent…

Inanna’s story holds wisdom within it about this process, and why the process of the journey to the deepest part of ourselves is painful, but crucial to creative work. Inanna knew the wisdom of the Underworld as an integral part of her divinity. This piece is about the power of transformation of Inanna into a goddess.
