Width - 8 cm / 3-1/8 inches
Depth - 6 cm / 2-1/4 inches

*Made of a limestone and quartzite composition stone, it has been given an aged slate black patina with a hint of ochre.
*Included with the code is a hand made information scroll offering a novel keepsake of the essential details mentioned below.

Available here is a reduction replica portion of the great ancient Babylonian code of Hammurabi.
This code was a vast list of laws that came to define the ancient society and influence modern day values and social structures. The term 'an eye for an eye' one of the most famous highlights of this seminal document first appeared here. 282 laws associated with trade, divorce and property were listed on a 2.25 meter / 7.4 ft pillar. The pillar itself was carved to form a finger with the finger nail portion recessed to showcase a carving of Hammurabi.

This small version of the large monument shows the upper part of the finger and it is covered with fine Akkadian cuneiform text documenting the first laws.
The two figures inhabit the finger nail portion in raised relief.
