The Ancient Gods of Sumer and Babylon...

KISHAR

Mesopotamian Mother Goddess

Earth Mother Goddess of the Horizon

If you don’t know what that means, we suggest you lie on the ground and stare at the horizon. You will then either glimpse a stunning insight, or else fall asleep.

KISHAR is the consort of her brother ANSHAR and signifies all manner of female submissive horizontal things. We can also reveal that she is the mother of ANU, although there were no birth certificates at the time.
