Beautiful handmade ceramic ANU pendant made of high fire clay.
I formed this pendant, dried it for several days then carved it with the ancient Sumerian ANU symbol, fired for many hours, then glazed and fired once again.
The pendant measures roughly 1-1/4" in diameter by 3/16" thick (34mm x 5mm) and is threaded on a strong 2mm thick Hemp cord, topped with a copper plated metal bead.

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.
