Statue of Ningal
Statue of the Sumerian reed goddess Ningal found at Ur (in modern day Iraq), 1953-1935 B.C.
Ningal was the daughter of Enki and Ningikurga and was the mother of Inanna, Utu, and Ereshkigal.
The statue contains an inscription on the side (picture to the right) from a priestess named Enannatumma, the daughter of Ishem-Dagan, possibly a Sumerian king. The inscription says that the statue itself is dedicated to the goddess Ningal.
