I have determined that _one of the prototypes_ for "the Garden of Eden" is 
the Mesopotamian myth about Enki's making of man to work in the "Garden of 
the Gods" at Eridu, relieving the Igigi gods of their toil in said garden. 
Accompanying the article are two photos of what I believe Eden once looked 
like and what it looks like today. If interested, cf. the following url:
