But stylistically i could only say it looks more like your first image yet in overall theme is more in keeping with the role playing
I guess my point was that the remnants of a certain group, or maybe just some latter day fanboys mocked up that "woodcut", a depiction of a goddess
who is very likely merely an old record in a new sleeve.
It is interesting what you mention with regards to a Deity that is the personification of Death who isn't going to be overly concerned with
much else, but there are of course balancing factors and ways around that found in mythology, compromise were an individual was allowed to leave the
underworld and be rejuvenated if another exchanged places, for example Dumuzid and his loving sister in Uruk lore.
Oh, man, you are really gonna dig that book. I'd say more, but I don't want to spoil it for you.
In my opinion people will only write and introduce into the zeitgeist what is determined by Higher Spiritual Powers, some certainly do that

what constitutes spirit is very broad however, my particular favourite being 'Elan'.
My cells don't dictate my choices, but I certainly wouldn't be in a position to make any if it weren't for their "choosing" to get on with their

In a myth about the end of Ra's rule on the earth, Ra sends Hathor or Sekhmet to destroy mortals who conspired against him. In the myth, Sekhmet's

hematite so that it resembled blood. Mistaking the beer for blood, she became so drunk that she gave up the slaughter and returned peacefully to
Though he suggests this is a Thracian version of Isis, in order to make comparison with the Thracian origin of the Bachanaal, in short Black Isias

Sekhmet Hathor for me was the personification of an aspect of Venus as Morning Star, bringer of war, as i mentioned earlier in this thread with
regards to the excavations at Ninevah and the arrival of the Ishtar Gate in Berlin, as also of course Istar had the same warlike Morning Star
The red sky at morning was traditionally a warning to shepherds and derives from this association, but when that day was spent one could perhaps have
taken delight in the Evening, though that led on to the night and deepest slumber from excess, and once again morning would draw nigh..
