There is nothing Alaha Shamash does not see, his best features might be his justness and generosity. This digital art was created alongside Diana Atureta's original poem "Shamash" as an experiment in style, shifting out of comfort zone and taking 3 months of work and research.

To experience the art: Enter the scene with your eyes on the grey Sumerian cuneiform script with "Sun" repeatedly written in a stone-like shape resembling ten golden seeds. Proceed toward the Shamash gate (Tara d’Shamash) in Nineweh, Iraq walking through memories into the horizon. Effectively becoming part of a vague mystical tree, you decide to enter through the gate door, acknowledging Shamash’s generosity, symbolized by the old Chinese character for sun 日 paired with the ring + staff that deities held in their hand in ancient reliefs. The hand transitions from the gate door to the graceful lift of a new force, a channel seen as Assyrian cuneiform script repeatedly showing “Sun.” Finally this force transforms into nine rays of colourful solar energy, reminiscent of an eye, with each beam written in living scripts and languages including Western Syriac script and Eastern Syriac script continuously spelling ܫܩܫ, English to showcase an additional name for this deity as “Utu,” and the modern Chinese character 太阳 for Sun.

Let your takeaway be the extent of Shamash’s power, and how long the journey of a single golden seed could be before it becomes a beam with Shamash’s help and with that of all seeds taking care of one another.
