Description

Humbaba is the name of the guardian of the forest from the Epic of Gilgamesh.  Gilgamesh confronts Humbaba on his mission to cut down the forest.  In some translations, Humbaba is depicted as a demonic foe, and in others a nature deity sworn to protect the forest.   Deep in history and into today, nature and its protectors are both celebrated and feared.  This tension plays out around the world as industry and economic interests take advantage of natural resources while people  struggle to protect the natural habitats and ecosystems they love and depend on.
