Gilgamesh (left) and Enkidu (right) return from killing the demon and recieve a hero's welcome.
Bull of heaven attacks...
Go get 'em!!
The Goddess of love, Ishtar saw Gilgamesh and instantily fell in love with Gilgamesh and wanted to be his wife.
Gilgamesh and Enkidu kill the bull...
Gilgamesh however did not feel the same way about Ishtar. Ishtar wasn't to happy with Gilgamesh.
"Life" after killing the bull...
Not only was Ishtar the Goddess of love, she was also the Goddess of war, so she sent the bull of heaven to attack Gilgamesh and his people.
Soon Gilgamesh and Enkidu came to the rescue, quickly teaming up and killing the bull.
The gods weren't so happy with Gilgamesh and Enkidu. The gods cursed Enkidu with a illness and he later died after being told how great his life was by one of the gods. Since Gilgamesh is part god he however was not cursed and went off in search for eternal life.
