THE FORGOTTEN GODDESSES: AL-LAT

One of the Arabian goddesses referred to in the Satanic Verses. Al-Lat appears riding on a camel and is associated with the hand of Fatima and the crescent moon and star. She is a moon goddess of North Arabia, came from Syria, and was worshiped on Mt. Sinai. The three goddesses are also referred to as “The Exalted Birds”or “High Flying Cranes,” so there is one overhead.

I painted watercolors of Al-Uzza and Manat, too, as well as an acrylic group-portrait, The Exalted Birds.
