“Aruru, you are the onewho created humanity? Now go and create
a new hero, let them balance each other
perfectly, so that Uruk has peace.”
When Aruru heard this, she closed her eyes,
And what Anu had commanded she formed in her mind.
She moistened her hands, she pinched off some clay,
She threw it into the wilderness,
kneaded it and shaped it into her idea.
