Ziggurat, the Tower of Babel - the tiers of the stepped pyramid were painted in symbolic colors of planets, five of which were known in Ancient Babylon. The last tier but one is silver (the Moon), the last and the highest one - golden (the Sun). For many centuries once a year at the vernal equinox night, during the flood of the Tigris and the Euphrates, on the top platform the state slave (not someone's private) - that is the nation, people (although by other sources it was a priest) - externalized the virgin priestess, the earth, on the open couch. The next morning the blooded and spermed sheet was demonstrated to people - the seed wass thrown, the earth wass fertilized. Expression, action - the contrast between the chaos of the surrounding world (invasions, wars, epidemics etc.) and the millenial immobility of the object - ziggurat.
