This photo is to represent Enkidu before he becomes civilized and part of Gilgamesh's family. While he is free among the animals he doesn't have any worries. Even though after he becomes civilized he is sentenced to death he still doesn't regret his choice. "My mouth that cursed you shall bless you as well." VII 152
Their very first encounter Gilgamesh and Enkidu started fighting. Once the battle was over they were instant friends. "They kissed each other and formed a friendship." II 18
Every night on their journey to the Forest of Cedar they camp on a hillside. When Gilgamesh wakes up from every nightmare Enkidu is there to comfort him and encourage him about the upcoming battle. "My friend your dream is a good omen fine is its message." IV 108
This photo represents the Forest of Cedar and the brothers battle with Humababa. The way the work together to defeat Humababa shows the lengths their relationship has come in such a short time. "Gilgamesh smote him in the neck,/his friend Enkidu gave encouragement." VI 24-25
This photo is to represent the family that Marji has throughout the book. She doesn't only look at her immediate family for guidance but her extended family as well as others she lets in along her journey.
This is to represent when Marji's parents send her off to school. It was probably very difficult for them to send their daughter so far away to live on her own. They did it because the love they had for her was so strong that they had to do what was best for her.
