In the times when information about the production of the equipments and tools required was limited, the humankind who fought agains watertight nature, explained their actions and experiences via drawings and writings. The thoughts and event that were desired to be trasferred to the future generations turned into artistic actions. Phenomena provided existance in today’s people memory and was an important factor in maintaining its continuity. One of these phenomena the Noah’s Flood, spread from Mesopotamia to Nile River and has been featured in so many mythologies with literary and pictorial descriptions. The stories told vary slightly by region depending on the region.
