First Styx 01

Eight pointed Star of Ishtar

This eight pointed Star of Ishtar started out as a representation of the points of a compass. The point on the left (as seen from the viewers perspective) kept breaking causing me to carve the whole figure deeper and deeper into the wood. It finally took on the present look which I consider to be more like the traditional eight pointed Star of Ishtar than to the compass points I started with.
