Serene pleasant-sounding glass & pottery chime with the ancient symbol of Anu.
I hand-rolled this 4" clay disc (10cm) and carved it with the ancient Cuneiform symbol, fired, then glazed with various glazes and fired once again.
Strands of clear and cobalt blue fused glass are decorated with Swarvoski, crystals and stone beads. The central bead is a genuine Czech glass bead. The chime terminates in one of my ceramic pendants with Ahura-Mazda written in the ancient cuneiform script.
Total length from top of hook to bottom is 151/2" long (40 cm). The hook is made of chainmail rings and steel.

Mesopotamian sky-god, one of the supreme deities; known as An in Sumerian and Anu in Akkadian.
Anu belongs to the oldest generation of Mesopotamian gods and was originally the supreme deity of the Babylonian pantheon. Consequently, his major roles are as an authority figure, decision-maker and progenitor. In heaven he allows functions to other gods, and can increase their status at will; in the Sumerian poem Inana and Ebih (ETCSL 1.3.2), Inana claims that "Anu has made me terrifying throughout heaven" (l.66). On earth, he confers kingship, and his decisions are regarded as unalterable.
