Cuneiform INNER SANCTUM Necklace Sumerian Pendant Green Moss Ceramic BARAG Amulet Mesopotamia

by Gaia's Sacred Creations

Beautiful handmade ceramic Cuneiform pendant made of high fire clay.

I formed this pendant, wrote the Sumerian word for Inner Sanctum (or BARAG in the ancient language), dried then fired it. I then glazed it and back in the kiln for another firing.

The pendant measures 1-3/8" in diameter by 3/16" thick (35mm x 5mm) and is threaded onto an adjustable strong 2mm thick Hemp cord.

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.

The name comes from the Latin word cuneus for 'wedge' owing to the wedge-shaped style of writing. In cuneiform, a carefully cut writing implement known as a stylus is pressed into soft clay to produce wedge-like impressions that represent word-signs (pictographs) and, later, phonograms or `word-concepts' (closer to a modern-day understanding of a `word'). All of the great Mesopotamian civilizations used cuneiform until it was abandoned in favour of the alphabetic script at some point after 100 BCE.
