On offer here is a detailed, replica seal impression of the legendary Ur Nammu. Made of a limestone and quartzite composition stone the tablet has an aged ochre patina which has been given a light polish.
Ur Nammu was the founder of the 3rd Sumerian dynasty and instigated a renaissance in art, building projects and the introduction of a legal code that still echoes into the modern age. All of this took place in southern Mesopotamia between 2047 & 2030 B.C.E
The inscripition on this tablet reads - 'Ur Nammu, the mighty hero, king of Ur, Hashammer the governer of Ishkun-Sin his servant'.
Ur Nammu is seated on a throne beneath the crescent moon and is being greeted by a goddess leading the owner of the seal into his presence. Another worshipper with raised hands can be seen far left.
