Necronomicon Tradition’s Illustration of Week


I stumbled upon this while working on my latest book. It has summer feel to it. You can find more infor on the pictures origin by clicking on this link:

“Below, a modern artist’s (Balage of Hungary) interpretation of the Mari wall mural fully restored. White doves were associated with the goddess Ishtar. Note that the humped back bulls do not have any horns in this artist’s imaginative reconstruction (bulls usually do have horns in ancient Mesopotamian art). Apparently the king of Mari is conversing with a priestess of Ishtar about an oracle while she feeds Ishtar’s doves, a court harpist looks on and a blind (?) beggar calls out for alms.”
