Magic and religion for Ancient Anatolian civilizations were inseparable parts of the same whole, because both were seen as the link between the physical reality and the subtle spheres of existence. There are many cuneiform tablets writing founded that inscribed god invocations. More specifically, through religion the Ancient Mesopotamians had a code of established practices, mystical and practical, to contact the Gods, seen as the cosmic powers which had created the universe, and humankind to serve them and complete for them the workings of existence.(gatewaystobabylon.com) Material: Volcanic Black Basalt This item is vintage from 1990's.
