The front of the temple of Inanna was built by the Babylonian king Kara-indas around 1413 BC. Built. It shows a goddess and a god who hold bottles in their hands, from which water flows and decorates the front in reliefed streams. The King Kara-Indas came from the mountain people of the Kassites, who ruled Babylon for over 500 years, as a symbol of the mountains are the semicircular reliefs of the facade and the shapes seen on the man's coat. Both figures are not to be assigned to any particular gods, but could be considered as images of the goddess Inanna, who was dedicated to the temple. Inanna was one of the most important Sumerian goddesses who was worshiped throughout Babylon. She is the goddess of love and sex life, warlike and conquering.
The front is made of burnt clay bricks, which are extremely fine, so that the joints become part of the forms and figures and do not disturb them. Noteworthy is the transition of the water flows in the form of a "collar" of the 3-dimensional figure in the flat wall surface.
While the bodies of the figures are decidedly static and not really human, both heads have very realistic features that, despite their too large eyes, are human. The woman is marked with a necklace and fine hairstyle, the man wears full hair and beard splendor. Both are marked with a horn crown as gods.
