Ur - Nannar statue 2000 BC and purse or bag
Type of Spiritual Experience
Sin (Akkadian: Su'en, Sîn) or Nanna (Sumerian: DŠEŠ.KI, DNANNA) was the god of the moon in the Mesopotamian mythology of Akkad, Assyria and Babylonia. Nanna is a Sumerian deity, the son of Enlil and Ninlil, and became identified with Semitic Sin. The two chief seats of Nanna's/Sin's worship were Ur in the south of Mesopotamia and Harran in the north.
The 'skirt' the god wears is effectively the cone of energy with its 5 levels and layer - Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Aether. He is in the Aether level thus is a god. There is an indication that this is a person not a deity, - in touch with the heavens but not of the heavens, as his hat is the insignia of an enlightened being - again the cone of energy with a stylised tassel representing the energy links with the spirit world.
Although the archaeologists have labelled this statue as though it was of an Intelligence, the appearance given is that this was a very revered god - a priest of the cult of the Moon. In the right hand there is a hole for what may have been either a scroll or a bag/purse, we have included a photo of just such a purse or handbag. Both have symbolic meaning which you can determine by following the links.
