Ishtar is the Sumerian goddess of love. The Sumerians looked upon her for fertility. She is the daughter of Anu, the father god of the Sumerian pantheon. As the goddess of love, she not only represents love, but also the dangers of love. However, being part of one of the oldest mythologies, Ishtar has several counterparts such as Inanna and Astarte.
Despite being the goddess of love, she is not as meek as the other goddesses of love. In comparison to Aphrodite who preferred the manipulation of men’s hearts, Ishtar is also known to have the temper of a war god and would inspire warriors on the battlefield. It is said that if she disappears, all sexual activities would disappear as well.
She is a fickle goddess, showing how easy it is to piss her off. When Gilgamesh, Lord of Uruk, decided to insult her, she demanded her father to make her the Bull of Heaven. Of course, it had its consequences, but Ishtar threatened to let the dead eat the living if he didn’t give her the bull. So, her father conceded. Despite this, Gilgamesh and Enkidu killed the Bull and offered the heart to Shamash, the sun god. Ishtar had never felt so slighted and demanded Enkidu’s life be paid for the death of the Bull of Heaven.
