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 and fired it using the Raku technique which brings out the unique colouring and metallic flash
Strands of fused glass and a pure hammered copper piece decorate the chime.
Total length from top of hook to bottom is 15-1/2" long (40 cm). The hook is made of chainmail rings and steel.
**Only one model has been made, unique creation, what you see in the photo is what you will receive. Colour will vary in intensity from PC monitor to smartphone screen.**
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.
