Freemasonry And The Ancient Gods

The "Sacred Tree"

Freemasonry And The Ancient Gods

On each side of it stands a winged figure, wearing the two-horned cap and holding a chaplet in the left hand, performing and act of worship (?). Adoration of "the Tree" in ancient Babylonia. Compare with similar scene depicted in the Mexican cross patee. The garlanders or necklets are probably representative of the female principle, as "the Tree" is of the male, and resemble those used in the worship of Pirapaus in ancient Rome. It will be noticed that the Tree has fifteen branches of leaves to a bunch. From the palace of Ashur-nasir-pal at Calah (Minrod). Now in the British Museum.
