Innonna, divine mother, divine whore

I am closing in on completing another image for my ebook edition of the poem The Song ov Elmallahz Kumming, Bouk 3. This image shows Innonna (Inanna/Ishtar), modified from the carved relief from Sumeria, now in the British Museum, and known as The Queen of the Night.

The image accompanies the following lines in my poem:

We loukt up tu Innonna,
     We hu wer lost,
     Hu wer livving in a waest,
Tu her hu iz Wilfull
     Az the liyon
     Az the ass;
Huze miend pennatraets
     Like the wind
     Like the flud;
We saw how unlike she wuz tu us
And koud not take owr eyz frum her boddee.

We saw how unlike she wuz tu us
And we ternd owr harts tu konker.

Here are 5 versions of the image. Do you prefer one above the others? Your general or critical feedback on the images is welcome and desired.
