On offer here Is a considerably topical plague protection amulet that reminds us that history can repeat itself over and over again through the Millenia. I have recreated this fine cuneiform script based on one of many Neo-Assyrian examples to have survived. These amulets were either carried during one’s travels or placed in the home.

Among the most important passages of text is one that states ‘the plague & pestilence shall pass over the house’ that has the magical amulet in use. It is in essence a portable protection spell.

Such was the ancient fear that could grip the cities of Mesopotamia when people witnessed plagues that were beyond the capabilities of the highest healers and sages.

For other Mesopotamian designs and inspiration, visit Down under Pharaoh on Instagram and YouTube. Many of those pieces can be ordered here.

*As each item is handmade, slight colour variations may occur.
