Folklore: The Sumerians believed that the mysterious woods of noble cedar trees were home to the god of wisdom and creation, Ea. Ea, also called Enki, was the lord of the Earth. He was the creator of the human race and the bestower of all the elements of civilization, such as the laws in moral codes, technology, the arts and healing spells. Branches of the cedar were used in ceremonies delivered under the cedar tree, the beloved of the great gods. They chose the cedar for its spiritual strength, its size, durability, and fragrance. They coul not deny the extraordinary qualities of the cedar and its woodward reflections of the presence of the divine inside the tree. If the highest god lived in the cedar, it was most appropriate to ask these trees to give their bodies for the paneling in the temple so that the innermost shrine resembled the inside of the sacred tree. It was deeply meaningful to have the doors to the throne room made from this wood, because the tree was a gate to the divine, and the king or the pharaoh in the throne room was the gods' representative.
