Ishtar in Athens

Alaa the Iraqi female athlete dresses as Ishtar, the Queen of Beauty holding the Mace of Wisdom in her hand and wearing the 3 Star Golden Crown with symbols of Love, Wisdom and Fertility. The Babylonian Queen Ishtar is here to bring to the world gifts of CULTURE and PEACE from our beloved country, IRAQ.

Iraq(Mesopotamia)is the cradle of civilization and the valley of two great rivers, the Tigres and the Euphrates where the Sumarian King Hamourabi established the first recorded law 4000 BC.
