ENKI SUMERIAN GOD WHO SAVED HUMANITY FROM THE FLOOD 2300 BC Stone statue, quartzite-limestone, 4.25 inches (10.5 cm), with description. Replica ancient Mesopotamian carved stone figurine. Wearing characteristic beard and royal turban, the figurine is a representation of En-Ki, the ancient Sumerian version of the creator deity. His name literally means "Lord Chi" or "Lord of Life-Force." Also known as Ea and El-Yah to the Semitic Akkadians, he is the universal deity and "Lord of all the earth." Enki's well-known emblem are the twin serpents looped around his neck, which represent the Life Force or forces of nature and became associated with magic and healing. Thus Enki was also venerated as Lord of Magic. BACK In the old mythic tales, Enki is remembered for taking sides with humankind and saving them from the complete destruction of the Great Flood. Defying angry star gods, Enki informs the Sumerian equivalent of Noah, Ziusudra-Utnapishtim, about the coming flood and instructs him to build a boat full of live animals and provisions to survive. In emulation of Enki's pet serpents, snake-charming magicians became a phenomenon unique to Babylon. Healing spells and methods of divination involving snakes appear on many of their tablets. However, Enki's earth-serpents are not to be confused with the celestial Dragon-Serpent Tiamet, the notorious "evil one" of Sumerian mythology. Sumerian Votive Figurine Sumerian Votive Figurine
