THE ANCIENT LAND OF SUMER
Etched deep into clay tablets
the Olden CREATION LEGEND of SUMER tells of a complex scenario.
Considered to be one of the oldest written creation myths it is termed-
” the ENUMA ELISH ”
Elusive still though ,
is the clear presentation of exactly who and what
were the GODS and GODDESSES
oft. mentioned in such as religious and textual works.
Nevertheless , the GODDESS INANNA appears as the first of her kind.
The Original GODDESS
of LOVE , SEX and WIDOWS…
…and more…much more. Indeed…
Inanna of Sumer.
From the Early Times and Places of this Early Civilisation
Inanna was. There.
An original member of the Council of Gods per se.
The Ennead Divine.
The 9 Olden Gods of Yore. Of Sumer as well. As well
as becoming the responsible Goddess for many
Divine Duties she founded her own City.
Brave enough,.. much more than many…
to even Descend into the Underworld.
To visit Her Sister. Elder thereof.
Recently widowed it seems.
Also mad and bad enough… older and bolder also.
To hang Inanna… on a Hook.
Hung out to dry… in Hell. Inanna. In deed.
Sis relented. Inanna… was let off the Hook.
However as part of that Deal of Sibling Rivalry.
Inanna’s Husband and Sister too. To stay in Hell.
6 months apiece this Sentence so and thus went.
Ennea the nomen of Temple Sanctuary Inanna.
Uruk the nomen of that City therein.
THE GODS ARE…
During research for this post i came across many reports which made the GODS somewhat larger than life.The exploits of the GODS and GODDESSES were rich with great adventures which they disturbingly handled…just like we would!!!???
WAR , LOVE AND SEX featured prominently as did the pictorial representations of this group.
The EGYPTIAN stoneworks and reliefs for example abounded with GOD pics.
Twas then i noticed…the “scale” of these pics was way off…???
I have copied several below as a sample.
In each of those shown(there are MANY MANY MORE btw)…there are two distinct groupings of people…
…one tall the other small…
…yet the smaller are not obviously children???
A GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND…
or SHOULD THAT BE …GODKIND!!!
