As a child somebody in family gave me a book with large, colorful drawings of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
I stayed in the memory one full page of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
They were built in the 6th century BC during the reign of Nebuchadnezzar II for his beloved wife Amytis who was daughter of the king of the Medes, to remember her the flowery mountains of his land, very different from the vast plains of Babylon.
These fell in the form of large terraces, had a wonderful and rich vegetation, and were located next to the palace of the King, by the river Euphrates. The common people had no access to these gardens but could admire them from outside the walls. From the highest terraces descended water irrigating the lower levels. How this enormous amount of water came up and transported from the river, fed all the terraces in a complex irrigation system is the result of the most contrasting theories.
Recently in the river, bare walls 25 meters thick could be staggered in terraces, as described by the Greek references. However, there is no evidence of this, on the numerous Babylonian documents of that period. Fruit of the fantasy or actually existed?
On my piece Gardens of Babylon from the Otras Tierras musical project I try to color with my guitar these wonderful gardens and reflect the chaotic life of the city of Babylon (Babel of biblical texts) of that time.
