Sumerian Mythology - The earliest deities of ancient Mesopotamia (45)
Enkidu - Gilgamesh's servitude and later, his inseparable friend
There have been suggestions that he may be the "bull-man" shown in Mesopotamian art, having the head, arms, and body of a man, and the horns, ears, tail and legs of a bull.Thereafter a series of interactions with humans and human ways bring him closer to civilization, culminating in a wrestling match with Gilgamesh, king of Uruk. Enkidu embodies the wild or natural world. Though equal to Gilgamesh in strength and bearing, he acts in some ways as an antithesis to the cultured, city-bred warrior-king.
Gilgamesh(Ref), king of Uruk, abuses his people. In response to complaints from the citizens, the goddess Aruru (Ninhursag:Ref2 )creates Enkidu in the steppe at the behest of the sky god Anu(Ref3).
Abundantly hairy and primitive, he lives roaming with the herds and grazing and drinking from rivers with the beasts. One day a hunter watches Enkidu destroying the traps he has prepared for the animals. The hunter informs his father, who sends him to Uruk to ask Gilgamesh for help. The king sends Shamhat, a sacred prostitute, who seduces and teaches Enkidu. After two weeks with her, he becomes human, intelligent and understanding words, however the beasts flee when they see him. Shamhat convinces Enkidu to face the tyrant Gilgamesh in combat. Meanwhile, in Uruk, the king has two dreams prophesying the arrival of his enemy.
As the gods had intended, Gilgamesh and Enkidu fought fiercely, but as equals, they embraced each other, recognising each other's strength. Kneeling for the first time, Gilgamesh lifts Enkidu up in his arms and declares to the people that he will be their best friend.
In the epic(Ref4), Enkidu is created as a rival to king Gilgamesh, who tyrannises his people, but they become friends and together slay the monster Humbaba and the Bull of Heaven; because of this, Enkidu is punished and dies, representing the mighty hero who dies early. The deep, tragic loss of Enkidu profoundly inspires in Gilgamesh a quest to escape death by obtaining godly immortality.

シュメール神話~古代メソポタミア最古の神々(45)
エンキドゥ〜ギルガメッシュの隷属、後は無二の親友
エンキドゥは、メソポタミア美術に描かれている、人間の頭、腕、胴体と、雄牛の角、耳、尾、足を持つ「ブルマン」ではないかと言われている。 その後、人間や人間のやり方との交流を重ねることで文明に近づき、ウルクの王ギルガメシュとの相撲勝負で頂点に達する。エンキドゥは野生や自然の世界を体現している。力も身なりもギルガメシュに劣らないが、文化的で都会育ちの戦士王への対照的存在のような役割を果たしているのである。
ウルクの王ギルガメシュ(参照)は民衆を虐げていた。民衆の不満を受けて、女神アルル(ニンフルサグ:参照2)は、天空神アヌ(参照3)の下命により草原にエンキドゥを創り出す。荒野に降りたばかりの頃は父も母もなく、長い髪、角、尻尾と毛むくじゃらの体を持ち、獣たちと同じように草を食べたり水を飲んだりして過ごし、人としての知能はほとんどなかった。
ある日、猟師がエンキドゥが獣のために用意した罠を壊しているのを見てしまう。狩人は父に報告し、父は彼をウルクに送り、ギルガメシュに助けを求める。王は神聖な娼婦であるシャムハットを送り込み、彼女はエンキドゥを誘惑して調教する。2週間後、エンキドゥは人間になり、知性と言葉を理解するようになるが、獣たちはエンキドゥを見て逃げてしまう。シャムハットはエンキドゥを説得し、暴君ギルガメシュとの決闘を決意する。
神々の思惑通りにギルガメシュとエンキドゥは激しい戦いを繰り広げたが、対等に渡り合ったことから2人は互いの力を認め抱き合う。初めて膝をついたギルガメシュはエンキドゥを抱き上げ、人々に向けて彼を親友とすることを宣言する。
叙事詩(参照4)の中でエンキドゥは、民衆を圧迫するギルガメシュ王のライバルとして登場するが、二人は友人となり、共に怪物フンババと天の牡牛を倒します。そのため、エンキドゥは罰を受けて死に、早死にする強大な英雄の象徴となります。エンキドゥの深い悲劇的な喪失は、ギルガメシュに、神のような不死を得て死から逃れようとする探究心を深く刺激する。

Ok Taylor Swift scares me. She is the music industry. We are in the Red Era waiting for a single from there and lo, here's a single from 1989 TV instead. Taylor cannot simply imagine we can survive this. I had little to no hope for my tests next week and now everything is gone. Also Wildest Dreams (TV, of course) always has a special place in my heart and oh god it is sooo good!

Izasa'ō: The King Of All Deers
This folktale is from Yasutomi Town [安富町] (Himeji City [姫路市], Hyōgo Prefecture) about Izasa'ō [伊佐々王] of Mt. Anji [安志山] (below) who's said to be a 6 m tall stag with bamboo leaves growing from its back, paddles on its hooves, and a pair of horns with seven branches each. Even a mere mention of its name is said to have struck fear in the local's heart.
Tumblr media
About 1200 years ago, Izasa'ō descended from the mountain to reek havoc in the nearby villages with its other numerous deers under its command. As time went by, Izasa'ō rampage grew more and more severe to the point villagers began fleeing left and right. Upon hearing this trouble, the Emperor dispatched all the strongest warriors from the Country of Harima [播磨国] (Southwest Hyōgo Prefecture) to Mt. Anji in order to subdue this beast.
The warriors of Harima fought bravery, but struggle to defeat Izasa'ō at first. Eventually, after deploying multiple scorched earth tactics against Izasa'ō by logging trees and burning forests, they finally managed to inflict a fatal blow to the monster.
With its last remaining strength, Izasa'ō went berserk which caused the earth to shatter and debris to flow. Once it stopped, the warriors of Harima cried out in unison: "Vanish! At this instance!"
Alas, Izasa'ō perished on top of a rock.
When the warriors exited from the mountain with the news of defeating Izasa'ō, the villagers cheered with joy and hailed them as heroes. Henceforth, the place became to be known as Anji [安志] which means "comfort". Meanwhile, the spot where Izasa'ō lay dead became to be known as Shika-ga-tsubo [鹿ヶ壺] (below) where the pool is believed to be bottomless.
