Goddess Ninhursag


Ninhursag: Great Sumerian goddess.

Ninhursag is the primal mother who formed mankind from clay, and she is revered by all Mesopotamian societies and cults.

She is associated with serpents and cows, and the milk from her breast feeds the cosmos.

She is a goddess of healing who is in charge of herbal remedies and all sorts of vegetative fertility.

Her name means "Lady of the Mountain" in English.

Ningal was born to Ninhursag and Enki in the city of Ur, where the first cities in the marshes of southern Mesopotamia were constructed entirely out of reeds without the use of nails or wood.
