The plaque is a mixture of Mediterranean/Near Eastern styles that characterize Phoenician art. It represents the ancient Canaanite goddess Astarte, shown nude like the Mesopotamian Ishtar, but with an Egyptian face and wig. She stands within a shrine protected by typically Near Eastern snarling lions that support Egyptian columns surmounted by heads of the Egyptian god Bes.
Reset my heart, break my pride, fill my empty heart, and make my life transparent so that only you can shine through. Mold me, refine me, guide me, and hold me; I am desperate to be reminded that I am Your child, that I am not alone, and that You have it all. Hiroshi Sugimoto, nude back with reflected images
