ANAHITA, Persian divinity

Anahita was the ancient Persian goddess of water and fertility, patroness of woman, as well as a goddess of war. She was identified with the planet Venus and was worshipped throughout the Persian Empire for many centuries.

She is dressed in golden robes complete with jewels and a halo crown or diamond tiara.

Her name means “the immaculate one” and she was considered as the “Golden Mother”.

The dove and the peacock are her sacred animals.
