Babaylonian Sun God Shamash

This is a disk that has the Babylonian Sun God Shamash symbol on it. It has a cross like appearance, or maybe even a star. The radiating arms that are wavy could be construed as solar energy waves. A more abstract thought for people that many thought of as less sophisticated than we are today. It is a fascinating look at the people that were here before we starting using our iphones. (I love history)

Glorious Sun

Here again we find another King that has represented himself as a Sun God. The face of the Sun God does not look so happy...I think it has an aura of melancholy. The rays around the sun have a leaf like look to them. It is beautiful though.
