Goddess of grain from the land of milk and honey.
Gracefully swirling her patterned skirt, the goddess waves sheaves of grain while dancing ecstatically.
Astarte was another name for Asherah, the consort of Baal, and one of the most deeply venerated fertility goddesses of ancient Babylon.
[Ras Shamra, 1900 BCE]
