Enki's sexual encounter with Uttu is radically different from those with his other daughters.

Scenes with animals are less varied and can be divided into three groups: the largest depicting common animals, a smaller group depicting rare animals, and a third group with snakes, birds of prey, lions, and monsters, often in heraldic compositions and "di probabile significato simbolico." Schematic seals combining spider and pig-tailed women and scenes consisting entirely of inanimate objects are considered to be two further categories; surely in the former, which Rova correctly relates to seals representing scenes from daily life, the spider stands for Uttu, the Sumerian spider-goddess of weaving, or her earlier counterpart.
