Arrow Dragon Lord

Princess A Welsh Bard (1946) ..
The dragon boundary marks are cast iron statues of dragons on metal or stone plinths that mark the boundaries of the City of London.. The dragons are painted silver, with details of their wings and tongue picked out in red.. The dragon stands on one rear leg, the other lifted against a shield, with the right foreleg raised and the left foreleg holding a shield which bears the City of London's coat of arms, painted in red and white.. This stance is the equivalent of the rampant heraldic 'attitude' of the supporters of the City's arms...

The main temple to Enki is called E-abzu, meaning "abzu temple" (also E-en-gur-a, meaning "house of the subterranean waters"), a ziggurat temple surrounded by Euphratean marshlands near the ancient Persian Gulf coastline at Eridu.. He was the keeper of the divine powers called Me, the gifts of civilization.. His image is a double-helix snake, or the Caduceus, sometimes confused with the Rod of Asclepius used to symbolize medicine.. He is often shown with the horned crown of divinity dressed in the skin of a carp..Considered the master shaper of the world, god of wisdom and of all magic, Enki was characterized as the lord of the Abzu (Apsu in Akkadian), the freshwater sea or groundwater located within the earth..His symbols included a goat and a fish, which later combined into a single beast, the goat Capricorn, recognised as the Zodiacal constellation Capricornus.. He was accompanied by an attendant Isimud.. He was also associated with the planet Mercury in the Sumerian astrological system..After 6 generations of gods, in the Babylonian "Enuma Elish", in the se7enth generation, (Akkadian "shapattu" or sabath), the younger Igigi gods, the sons & daughters of Enlil and Ninlil, go on strike and refuse their duties of keeping the creation working.. Abzu God of fresh water, co-creator of the cosmos, threatens to destroy the world with his waters, and the Gods gather in terror..According to Sumerian mythology, Enki also assisted humanity to survive the Deluge designed to kill them.. In the later Legend of Atrahasis, Enlil, the king of the gods, sets out to eliminate humanity,whose noise is disturbing his rest..., you have warrior's blood in your veins..Use it as fuel, as ammunition..It's what guides you home..If I don't go home, you don't go home..Sir, Rules of Engagement?..
