Q & A

The Old Carbon Cylinder Seal is a remarkable artifact that dates back to ancient Mesopotamia, a region known for its rich history and cultural heritage. Cylinder seals were used as impression stamps by the people of Mesopotamia, serving as a form of identification and authentication for documents, business transactions, and personal correspondence. These seals were known as “kishib” in Sumerian and “kunukku” in Akkadian, and they played a crucial role in the administrative, legal, and commercial activities of the time. The Old Carbon Cylinder Seal is a testament to the advanced craftsmanship and artistic skills of ancient Mesopotamian artisans.

Materials and Craftsmanship

The Old Carbon Cylinder Seal is crafted from high-quality materials, showcasing the meticulous attention to detail and precision of ancient artisans. These seals were typically made from semiprecious stones such as marble, obsidian, amethyst, and lapis lazuli, or metals like gold and silver. The intricate designs and patterns on the seal were carved using primitive tools, a testament to the ingenuity and skill of the craftsmen. The seal features a pattern of horizontal stripes and a central dot, resembling an eye or target design, which adds to its aesthetic appeal and historical value.

Uses and Cultural Importance

Cylinder seals held great significance in ancient societies, serving multiple purposes beyond their primary function as impression stamps. They were used to authenticate royal decrees, contracts, and legal agreements, ensuring their validity and authenticity. The seals were often worn by their owners on strings of leather or other materials around the neck or wrist, or pinned to a garment. In addition to their practical uses, cylinder seals also had amuletic and ornamental value, often being used as magical amulets or jewelry. The Old Carbon Cylinder Seal is not only a functional artifact but also a piece of art that reflects the cultural and historical richness of ancient Mesopotamia.
