Description

DAGĀN

DAGĀN is an abstract close-up photograph of weathered sandstone. Decades of natural weathering have caused long-term damage to the stone, revealing textured shapes and depth. As it is overgrown with lichen, it resembles a scale-like structure with the focus of interest, an embedded mineral, serves as the creature’s eye.

DAGĀN is an ancient Mesopotamian and ancient Canaanite deity. He seems to have been worshiped in Ebla, Assyria, Ugarit and by the Amorites as a fertility god. A long-standing connection with a Canaanite word for “fish”, perhaps dating back to the Iron Age, has led to an interpretation as a “fish-god” and to the association of “people” motifs in Assyrian art. The “fish” etymology was accepted in 19th and early 20th-century science. This led to an association with the “man” motif in Assyrian and Phoenician art.
