In the Uruk Mesopotamia (circa 4000 to 3000 BC), numerous dedicatory stone heads and statuettes of a deity or a worshipper have been found in the city Ur (an important Sumerian city in Mesopotamia, located in modern-day Iraq) and the peripheral areas, for example, Mari (an ancient city in northern Mesopotamia). Fashioning alabaster or hard stone with deities’ representations was a typical Sumerian and Akkadian practice prevalent in the Early Dynastic Period (circa 2900-3220 BC). Mesopotamian stone executions with Nammum’s representations are comparatively rare among the entire genre of votive stone materials portraying the gods and goddess worshipped by the Sumerians and Akkadians. Nammu was the mother goddess in the Sumerian world, and she was believed to have given birth to the senior gods and created humanity. Her images on the Sumerian stone sculptures are often taken as a representation of a secular female worshipper.
