Goddess Nanshe of Lagash

I learned of the Goddess in the Chalice and the Blade.  She's a goddess whose spirit I would like to get more in touch with because of her charitable love and her service.

Nanshe is described as "she how knows the orphan, knows the widow, seeks justice for the poor, and shelter for the weak."

Her symbols are fish because she is orginal the goddess of water and fishing and the pelican which in folk tales will open its own chest to feed its young.

She is the goddess of social justice, prophecy, fertility and fishing.  She is said to have dominion over the Persian Gulf and all the animals with in.

Her power seat is the Sirara temple in the city of Nina.
