He is tasked by the god Enki Ea to create a giant ship to be called Preserver of Life in preparation of a giant flood that would wipe out all life. The character appears in the Epic of Gilgamesh. He is tasked by the god Enki Ea to abandon his worldly possessions and create a giant ship to be called Preserver of Life. The Preserver of Life was made of solid timber, so that the rays of Shamash the sun would not shine in, and of equal dimensions in length and width. The design of the ship was supposedly drawn on the ground by Enki, and the frame of the ark, which was made in five days, was feet in length, width and height, with a floor-space of one acre. The entrance to the ship was sealed once everyone had boarded the ship.

A serendipitous deal between a history museum and a smuggler has provided new insight into one of the most famous stories ever told: "The Epic of Gilgamesh. This new section brings both noise and color to a forest for the gods that was thought to be a quiet place in the work of literature. The newfound verse also reveals details about the inner conflict the poem's heroes endured.
