Inanna and Ereshkigal

Inanna, Queen of the
Above World,
descends to the Underworld
to visit her sister, Ereshkigal,
Queen of that realm.
This is a risky and
dangerous undertaking.
Being of high order
they each wear the girdle
of their power
around their loins.
This belt of precious lapis
contains the symbols
of the seven gates
which must be passed
to gain entrance.
