SECRETS FROM SYRIAN HILLS ODDLY DESIGNED COSMETIC JARS ADORNED THE DRESSING TABLE OF A PRINCESS Formed like ducks, with their heads twined gracefully backward, the upper vessels are rouge jars. Their wings, inlaid with blue, serve as covers (see page 112). GOLD PENDANTS FROM THE NECKLACES OF A ROYAL LADY The center pendant of each necklace was a golden plate. On one of these, second from the right, is shown Astarte, Goddess of Love and Fertility, with her holy creatures, the lion, the ram, and the snake (see page 121).
