Lugalirra and Meslamtaea (a pair of gods)

SKU: Lugalirra and Meslamtaea

Hawk Buckman™ Black & White Collection
(Black and White Fine Art Photograph)

From the Artist

When people meet me after seeing this image, they immediately ask, “what does the title mean?” I visited Toadstool Geological Park and Campground near Crawford, Nebraska, in the spring of 2021 with a medium-format film camera that I borrowed from a friend. The geology there is stunning, especially during the blue and gold hours of the day. As I explored the landscape, I came across this soft rock formation. 

At first glance, it struck me as two ancient Mesopotamian gods, or the divine twins, associated with the underworld god Nergal, considered the (southern) Mesopotamian god of death, pestilence, plague, and the Lord of the Underworld. Later traditions imagine the twins as the guardians of the underworld entrance. They were considered the same god in some ancient manuscripts and singular entities (twins) in others.

I love the play between hues of black and white. The texture of the rock is what drew me to the image. The weatherworn matrix tells the story of geologic time and its passing which is why I named this image after these two long-forgotten gods. It’s appropriate because nothing lasts forever, especially religion and the gods associated with them.
