"the broad-hipped woman, with monsters dropping from the vast gash between her legs was Hubur "


This goddess is also known as Tiamat, a Babylonian goddess of the ocean. She is often depicted in the form of a dragon. Ancient sources contain accounts of her giving birth to dragons and serpents.

The Babylonian creation myth, the Enuma Elish, describes her as giving birth to eleven monsters to aid her son Kingu in his plan to seek revenge for the murder of his father (and Tiamat's consort) Apsu.
