Ameretat ~ The Goddess of Flora

Medium: Oil on Panel

The Sassanian ideal of feminine beauty shows the Persian women with beautiful almond shaped eyes and a heart shaped face with small nose and rosebud lips. In excavated urns this type of imagery when combined with a headdress composed of various plants, signified the goddess of plants, Ameretat.

This gave me the idea of adding a goddess to the 'Gardens of Eden' series. More will come soon~
