Ninhursaga is the Goddess of the Mountains and Consort of Enki.



Since the gods have left the earth, Ninhursaga has focused her attention on her husband Enki. Thanks to her industrious and diligent diplomatic work, he has become the most powerful of the gods. The fact that he is not their indisputable leader is only due to his rather excentric character.  Ninhursaga knows how to exploit the strengths and weaknesses of her fellow gods and goddesses and she is also the one who sets right what Enki puts at peril with his uncompromising stance. She lacks spontaneity or imagination, one could even call her dull at times. But why try and put her energy into cultivating creativity when she knows that she will never be able to outshine Enki with her efforts in this field?



Ninhursaga played a main role in the creation of the world. When Enki created man out of earth, the rough form was defined, but the details like fingers, toes, the form of the nose were left to the midwife Ninhursaga, who, as always, took on this task with great diligence. Later on, the gods decided to send theor offspring as kings to Earth to help humanity in developing the virtues of the Me: civilization. It was Ninhursaga, who nourished each of them with her milk to prepare them for their life on earth which would finally cost them their immortality.
