Transcript of The Epic of Gilgamesh Storyboard
The Battle with Humbaba:
The story introduces Gilgamesh, the arrogant king of Uruk who is one third human and two thirds god.
The Story of the Flood:
By: Anusha Patil, Serin Varughese, Talia Wilson, and Alisha Malhotra
Hearing of his arrogance, the gods create Enkidu to fight Gilgamesh and absorb his powers
Enkidu loses to Gilgamesh in a wrestling match, and the two become friends.
Before they fight Humbaba, the giant guarding the cedar forest, Enkidu is concerned and Gilgamesh tells him not to worry
Gilgamesh prays to the gods who, along with Enkidu, help Gilgamesh to defeat Humbaba
Humbaba pleads with Gilgamesh to let him go free and Gilgamesh almost does before Enkidu intervenes and tells him not to trust Humbaba.
Gilgamesh kills Humbaba
The Death of Enkidu:
The goddess Ishtar falls in love with Gilgamesh.
Ishtar releases the Bull of Heaven to destroy Gilgamesh's kingdom.
Together, Enkidu and Gilgamesh kill the bull
Gilgamesh seeks a special flower to make him immortal.
He travels through harsh conditions to find it.
After Gilgamesh gets the flower, a serpent comes and steals it from him.
Gilgamesh goes to the bottom of the ocean to get the flower.
The Death of Enkidu (continued):
They order his death because he helped Gilgamesh kill the Bull and Humbaba
Upset by the death of his friend, Gilgamesh tells himself that he will never die and seeks immortality
Gilgamesh rejects all of Ishtar's advances.
Enkidu starts getting dreams in which the gods sentence him to his death
A.M. & A.P.
The Gods decide to destroy all mankind
Gilgamesh builds a boat, so he, his family, his kin, along with wild and tame animals, can survive the "destroying rain."

After six days and six nights the flood ends.

Utnapishtim's wife bakes a loaf of bread for every night that Gilgamesh falls asleep.
Utnapishtim tells Gligamesh about the secret to his eternal life.
