That the erotic clay plaques were found in temples, graves and private homes makes it difficult to generalize about their intended use, but is testament to their popularity. That excavators found the erotic artwork in high-traffic rooms of homes leads Assante to infer that they were accessible to men, women and children. Cylinder seals — small cylinder-shaped stones etched with figures and cuneiform used as a signet — occasionally featured men and women in erotic poses.
This is the destiny of mortals. The Gilgamesh epic also describes sexuality as a potent force that distinguishes humans from beasts. Israelite and Canaanite artwork, by comparison, typically had very little overt sexuality, only nude female figures that disappeared after the institutionalization of early Judaism in the eighth century BCE. Both figures are fully clothed, however, and there is no latent intercourse, only the suggestion of it. The similarity between the two passages comes as little surprise.
Ancient Israel was the land bridge connecting the two major civilizations of the ancient Near East, Egypt and Mesopotamia, and its culture was influenced heavily by both. A stark difference, however, was the difference in ancient Babylonian and Israelite perspectives on male homosexuality. Napoli, — Journal of the American Oriental Society , 93— Oppenheim, A.
