Beautiful handmade ceramic pendant made of high fire clay. I formed this pendant, wrote the Sumerian cuneiform script for Enki, the Sumerian God of Wisdom in the ancient language, dried then fired it. I then glazed it and back in the kiln for another firing.
The pendant measures roughly 1-1/4'' in diameter by 3/16" thick (35mm x 5mm ) and is threaded onto an adjustable strong 2mm Hemp cord topped with a stainless steel ring and bead.

Enki (also known as Ea, Enkig, Nudimmud, Ninsiku) was the Sumerian god of wisdom, fresh water, intelligence, trickery and mischief, crafts, magic, exorcism, healing, creation, virility, fertility, and art. Iconography depicts him as a bearded man wearing a horned cap and long robes as he ascends the Mountain of the Sunrise; flowing streams of water run from his shoulders, emphasizing his association with life-giving water, while trees representing the male and female principle stand in the background. The streams are interpreted as the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers which, according to one myth, were formed from Enki's semen. His name means "Lord of the Earth" and his symbols are the fish and the goat, both representations of fertility.
Cuneiform is a system of writing first developed by the ancient Sumerians of Mesopotamia c. 3500-3000 BCE. It is considered the most significant among the many cultural contributions of the Sumerians and the greatest among those of the Sumerian city of Uruk which advanced the writing of cuneiform c. 3200 BCE.
