    This bead-loom strap is 12"x1.25" plus another 1.5" of fringe. I found it awhile ago in Iowa so I believe this is a plains example. Beautiful glass beads. It must be a tourist item for someone who wanted UTU?

    I don't know what this is so please help me out. Thanks, Val.

      I love these. I had a belt that said Black hills from when I was a kid. Wonder if my Mama still has it?

      Amber - what do you think this might be? It's a flexible loom piece - maybe attached to a belt or hat?

      Thank you Katzl - I love this! I wear it as a bracelet wrapped twice w/a wonderful western style pin to hold it in place. See the last picture.

      Hi valentino97, here is some info on Utu! =) Love it!
      Šamaš (Sumerian Utu) is the god of the sun. He brings light and warmth to the land, allowing plants and crops to grow. At sunrise Šamaš was known to emerge from his underground sleeping chamber and take a daily path across the skies. As the sun fills the entire sky with light, Šamaš oversaw everything that occurred during the daytime. He thus became the god of truth, judgements and justice. Šamaš also played a role in treaties, oaths and business transactions, as he could see through deceit and duplicity. As a defender of justice, the sun god also had a warrior aspect.

      Thanks Tom - this is great information. Yes - I agree - love this god of the sun. Thanks you for taking the time to find who UTU was.

      Thank you Tom for the love, brat, kevin, and smiata.
