Welcome to the World of Enheduanna

"Enheduanna, Princess of Sumer and Akkad, The World's First Poet" created by artist Balage Balogh

My deepest gratitude to Balage Balogh and ArchaeologyIllustrated.com for allowing the use of this image to give a playful view of the life of Enheduanna. "It seems there was much alcohol consumption in Sumerian society in the form of barley beer sweetened with date juice, so I decided to depict a merry gathering of ladies in an inebriated state in the presence of Inanna in the dark interior of a Sumerian temple," says the artist.
