A purely subjective analysis of the 199 images extracted from the original text of Seven Hymns to the Goddess Inanna classified the words into five categories:  Transcendence, Hearth/Home, Earth, The Sacred, and Community.  In the color chart below, you can easily see the incidence of the words in each of the five categories.  A strong proclivity towards words in the "Sacred" category is observed.  This analysis was done to demonstrate the sacred nature of the original work and the nature of sacred reality in general for the ancient Sumerians.
