Ovetto Sumerian
With this Ovetto we pay tribute to the most ancient form of writing ever discovered, the cuneiform one, engraved on clay tablets, that have defied time and survived intact to the present day, testimonies to three millennia of culture.
Sumerian cuneiform writing is a significant product of human ingenuity and creative ability. It gradually spread through the Near East over 5000 years ago and represents man's first attempt to build a code of communication that would stand the test of time.

These engravings represent to all intents and purposes the prototype of more evolved forms of writing, including our alphabet.
