On offer here is a replica of a fine ancient
cuneiform tablet. The well preserved original tablet was incised in moist clay, then fired or left to harden in the sun.
This edition is made of a strong limestone and quartzite composition stone and has an earthy ochre patina.
The writing appears on both sides of this rectangular tablet with a distinctive blank area on the reverse side. The cuneiform text is very tightly configured and was inscribed by someone with extremely good eyes and precision of hand.
Unfortunately I don't know what the translation for this piece is but it is an authentic text awaiting decipherment. Protection prayers, dockets of transactions or commemorations of any sort were written on these tablets. Whatever they say, they are a direct link to the ancient minds who conceived one of the earliest forms of writing in the world.
