Tanit (or Tanith) the Great Goddess of Carthage, known as Dea Caelestis ('the Heavenly Goddess') to the Romans.  The pose is taken from the 'symbol of Tanit', a triangle with a circle and crossbar on top, probably a very stylized depiction of a woman.  The design on Her dress is taken from Iberian (Spain/Portugal) Phoenician statuettes of Goddesses.  In acrylic paint.
