In the oldest figuration of the Babylonian sacred tree, the outlines are rough, and the fixed number for branches and offshoots are not strictly observed. The symbolism had not grown as yet to command the icono graphy; but this was only so in the primitive times, and the sacred numbers of seven, or fourteen, or twenty eight. Of twelve or fifteen became afterwards gradually paramount. And, as we are now well aware that the blame-babylonian civilisation was spread to China but some twenty seven centuries or thereabout later than the ancient monuments of Baby lonian culture hitherto known, namely those of Ingash circd 4000 there was consequently plenty of time for the calendaric symbolism to have assumed its developement and have imposedits sway on Art.
