It's the date palm of Enki, a bird of Heaven An-zu possibly Cygnus which is close to the Field Constellation/Pegasus square and the serpent possibly Cetus, the date palm motif could also be related to the eight legged spider which could also represent Canis Major at that early Dilmun period as well as the eight pointed star/floret, the crescent beneath the star an asterism of Canis Major, later periods Sirius was the arrow star of a bow still relating thus to liner projection.



The spider Goddess Uttu as Canis Major saw Enki ploughing through generations of daughters to arrive at the birth of Uttu from whom eight Deities were born through eight plants, that's Enki as a God of evolutionary generations and development, so Sirius represented such principles at that time, and the relationship between plants and living creatures is established, the axiom of Enki relates to raising and establishing the standard.

Enki and Ninhursag



The dot in the circle as used for the eyes is a Sun symbol but it is also applicable to Sirius as the brightest star as still related to light, i don't think this directly relates to the Eye of Providence which i think derives from the Planet Mercury seen as an Eye of Re though the principle is the same in terms of inner illumination and consciousness.

The handbag type shapes that are at the top of stone blocks below have always confused me about Gobekli Tepe, could it be rising Sun glyphs?

It's more likely to be the handbag of the Goddess Inara called the Kursa, a hunting bag, which could be held to contain a sampling of all beasts, if you look closely there are little beasts seen in conjunction.


In the festivals, Inara is reproduced on several occasions as having the features of the goddess of the hunt, and also as the mistress of the animals. In the KI.LAM. Festival - a three-day festival which was celebrated in Hattusa – the leopard, the deer, and the boar are offered as the animals of the goddess. From the temple of the goddess, Inara is featured in texts from the Old Kingdom with a procession of these animals on the first day. Like other tutelary gods of nature Inara could be worshipped as the figure of a kursa.


A Kursa on the Eya tree.



The best examples are from later Jiroft and appear to relate closely to a Lord of Beasts as related to hunting, the brother of Inara in Hattic myth Telepinu.



There is an astral connection as Constellations can be seen mirrored on these, thus the handle relates to the arc of the skies, this will also relate to their importance as grave objects, the rising and the setting transference across horizons



Thus the Kursa could also be said to relate to the world and the three levels of existence, but it could also represent three worlds in terms of three ages in the bag as it were, perhaps that is why three are carved at Gobekli Tepe, whatever the case this is carried over from Mesolithic tradition.

Thanks Madrusa,
I'm fine on Egyptian and Greek legends, but obviously not all legends, some beliefs around the world can think Sirius is where souls go, even native American Star lore think of it as a dog guarding souls!

Again, it's quite a stretch to connect Göbekli Tepe to the Hurrians. I mean, there's a 7,000 year gap there.

A bag is a bag though. At Göbekli Tepe, the bags could as easily represent their own hunting bags conveying the surplus of game, or grain bags, showing how fruitful the area was, or just the bags they used to carry the dirt to bury the place - which they did every 15 to 25 years.

I was unable to confirm the legend from that website. There's so many BS indigenous sites out there, and BS indigenous legends, that I always check.

The Hittite-Hurrian texts are the closest you'll get to understanding, but also the Hittites were great restorers and maintainers of tradition hence the reason they collected and wrote down the myths and rituals of greater Anatolian tradition, they likely also best preserved the cultic associations of constructing with pillars.


In front of [the pillar where] the owner of the house is sitti[ng, to] (this) pillar they do not sacrifice (any sheep). Bu[t] to the pillars (sg.) which are on the right and left (side of the owner of the house), to those they sacrifice (sheep) in three different places.

Each time, however, they s[ac]rifice one sheep.In front of the altar, he (the owner of the house) pours beer (and) wine after the blood (offering). In front of each of the two pillars they libate three times. They place the raw meat (of the sacrificed sheep), the breasts, shoulders, heads, and feet, in front of the altar.

The breast, shoulders, heads, (and) feet they place in front of those t[wo] pillars, to (or for) which (animals) have been slaughtered. Afterward he libates beer (and) wine three times before the altar.

He (now) libates three times before each of the three pillars. He makes the rounds 14 times (around the pillars?). [They] play the small IStar-instrument.


You shall build for eternity


There are ample archaeological remains from the Early Bronze Age which illustrate the early Hattic building tradition. Needless to say, the Hittites
inherited this tradition, modified it, and "magnified" its size, proportions, and dimensions.


It has to be considered the extent cultic practises of those sites had continued in some form even into the historic period.

7.000 years is SOME tradition. Especially since for more than half of that time there existed no written language.

Well that's the Fish cult of the Ap-su and the held object generally considered a bucket, but i did say the three baskets seen at Gobleki Tepe might represent the three levels of existence were that would would represent the deepest, the hunting bag of course for the creatures of the Earth.

Hi Madrusa,

I wait to see if any conclusions are made from the bone fragments found at Gobekli Tepe, hopefully testing isn't hampered by the age of the bones.

I would like to find out if the bones show any drugs, obviously coc aine would put "The cat amoung the pigeons" if present, LOL!
