A Babylonian Tree of Life 6th century BCE No13 by 


A digital painting, using Classics in DAP, of a Babylonian Tree of Life.

The original PD black & white image used is from the book ‘Chaldea From the Earliest Times to the Rise of Assyria’ by Zénaïde A. Ragozin, supplied by project Gutenberg.
In Babylonian mythology the Tree of Life was a magical tree that grew in the center of paradise. The Apsu, or primordial waters, flowed from its roots. It is the prototype of the tree described in Genesis: the biblical Tree of Paradise evolved directly from this ancient symbol; it is the symbol from which the Egyptian, Islamic, and Kabbalistic Tree of Life concepts originated.
