The Burney Relief (also known as the Queen of the Night relief) is a Mesopotamian terracotta plaque in high relief of the Old-Babylonian period (19th c. BC), depicting a winged, nude, goddess-like figure with bird's talons, flanked by owls, and perched upon two lions.
It has been debated wether the Goddess represented is Lilith, Inanna/Ishtar or Ereshkigal.
Lilith: Babylonian Demon of the Night
Ishtar: Mesopotamian Goddess of Love, Beauty and War
Ereshkigal: Sumerian Goddess of the Underworld
