'Déesse du Soleil' by Lars Pillmann | Arinna, Sun Goddess of Ancient Hittites

DolceTracker| Speaking of female deities that religious fundamentalists believe must be scourged from the earth in the name of monotheism, this lovely fashion film by Lars Pillmann was inspired by Arinna, the sun goddess of the ancient Hittites.

The Hittites were a Bronze Age people of Anatolia. They established a kingdom centered at Hattusa in north-central Anatolia ca. the 18th century BC. The Hittite empire reached its height ca. the 14th century BC, encompassing a large part of Anatolia, north-western Syria about as far south as the mouth of the Litani River (in present-day Lebanon), and eastward into upper Mesopotamia. The Hittite military made successful use of chariots,[1] By the mid 14th century BC (under king Suppiluliuma I) carving out an empire that included most of Asia Minor as well as parts of the northern Levant and Upper Mesopotamia. After ca. 1180 BC, the empire disintegrated into several independent “Neo-Hittite” city-states, some surviving until the 8th century BC. via Wiki
