this picture is trying to show how the tree of eternal life is god or goddess & she holds the soul vessels in the air inside plants which hang down. The horned animal in the reeds represents how human souls have rods coming up from beneath them where the tree of life is & the rods stick into their soul orbs & hold their orbs up in the human body. The souls are represented as birds with pine cone bodies. The cones are the outer shell of the inner layers of the orbs. So we are shown flowers with bird cones on top of them to symbolise that the tree of eternal life sticks rods into orbs & lifts them up into the material world. This is why people feel that they are spiritual beings & can fly etc, & yet somehow can't quite break free to do that yet. It is because Goddess is holding them on rods which stick into them. Often this is depicted as Isis holding an orb on her head between two spiked branches.
Here we see God holding a soul in her hand & it is the outer layer which is oblong shaped. It has a round orb inside it which you can see at the bottom on the left. You can see through the edge of the oblong orb to the round orb behind it, & that is to show that the oblong one is only a shell. God has a tree on her head to symbolise that She is The tree of Eternal Life. She is holding the fruit upside down to show that it hangs from the body of the human & yet holds everything up the right way.
This image is trying to show that angels & souls grow inside the cones of a plant
This is the Sumerians trying to show that God is a tree with cones on it that grow souls inside. They display a naked leg with details of its inner muscle to symbolise that the tree they are pointing to connects under each persons skirt to their inner legs. It is a fact & is why Adam & Eve could not handle the truth about the tree
And here they try to show that the cones are upside down as well & yet do the same job
