Grassland Passage To The Nether World

Synopsis:
The Epic Gilgamesh of Mesopotamia, is the historical story of the all-powerful King Gilgamesh. The God aruru creates the human Enkidu as a companion for King Gilgamesh. Enkidu is a beast man who lives among the creatures of the forest upsetting the traps of the hunters of the grasslands. One particular hunter is told to receive a kar.kid, or harlot so that she may copulate with Enkidu for six days and seven nights and afterwards return him as a civilized man to King Gilgamesh. The epic Gilgamesh is encompassed upon eleven tablets with a fragmentary appendix on a twelfth. One incomplete passage lies between the Hunter and the Harlot as they begin a journey into the woods searching for the beast-man. This is one adaptation of what may have possibly occurred as they journeyed in searched for Enkidu.
