WHA_974KH

Segment from the facade of the Inanna Temple built by the Kushite ruler Kara-indash Uruk ca 1413 BC In the northeast corner of the wall surrounding the Eanna Precinct at Uruk, archaeologists unearthed the remains of a small temple with a strictly symmetrical plan. There were bastion-like towers at all four corners of the building which stood on a platform. The niched facade was made of moulded, fired bricks. Standing male and female deities alternate in the niches. Life-giving water pours out onto the earth from the vessels in their hands.
