About "Echo of Sumer"

Sumer is an ancient nation in Mesopotamia. They used clay tablets to record the ferocious and violent history when extraterrestrial creatures (we call them gods) coexisted with early humans thousands of years ago. I feel that this historical scene is still continuing today when I opened the clay tablet. We have to doubt that the essence and the future of humans were grown from the gladiatorial seeds planted by the gods.

"Sumer" floats in the linear and colorful sky, which has been entwined on the edge of my mind. It goes far beyond the concept of a "nation" myth. It is a remedy, a sensation, and an expectation for human beings.
