When the people of Uruk rebel against the tyranny of Gilgamesh,
they petition the Gods…
Hearing their plea the Goddess, Aruru, fashions the twin of Gilgamesh
from the clay of her heart
and sets him loose in the wilderness
where he lives and runs with wild animals…
Then Aruru sends Gilgamesh a dream.
Although vivid the dream is obscure to Gilgamesh
so he seeks an interpretation from his mother, the Goddess Ninsun…
In this dream Enkidu, the wild man, is likened to a boulder
which falls to earth from the sky.
The people of Uruk adore this fallen sky-stone
and treat it as though it were a divine-child.
