The Hittite jewelry bringing goodness to the world

hittites Jewelry

NINDA-an ezatteniwatar-ma ekutteni … “Eat bread and drink water, too”The first sentence deciphered in the Hittite cuneiform script. Too simple and too complicated as well Canan Klimdar is bringing the traces of the past into present with her collection she called Hittite Jewelry

Canan Klimdar, jewelry designer, introduced her new collection called “Ninda”, by which she emphasized that energy arising from the unity of women will wipe malice off the earth, through an exhibition with same name. Canan Klimdar, who previously was a well-known business woman in the insurance sector, set her heart on jewelry, an almost male dominant job, in 2006. Alimdar celebrated the 10th year of her first step into the magical world of jewelry design with a distinguished collection called “Ninda”, inspired by Hittites, the Hatti people with 1000 gods of Anatolia. Let’s have a journey together among the special stories of these jewelries each possesses a different meaning…

Assu

Anatolia has been a cradle to many cultures. Surely, Hittites are among the most famous ones… Assu means “goodness” in Hittite language. It is probably the most necessary word today: goodness… Based on a Hittite myth, Plant and Fertility God Telepinu gets angry and leaves Hittite land. With his disappearance, plants die off, famine starts, human beings and animals cease to breed until mother goddess Hannahanna sends out a bee and have Telepinu located. If the world renounces goodness, the result will not be much different than the myth.

In Hittite alphabet, femininity and goodness share the same symbol: A triangle… Thousands of years ago, Hittite people have solved the essence of the matter that goodness will spread through the hands of women to the world. They have placed triangles made of copper or various metals under temples and important buildings believing that holy buildings can be strengthened with goodness. This belief has survived until today. The amulets attached to babies carry the aim of attracting goodness, dont they? Isosceles triangle represents the city and two isosceles triangles represent the country. And the downward pointing triangle represents femininity…

With the masterpiece of the series, a necklace called “Sun goddess of Arinna” (mother goddess of Hittites), Canan Klimdar underlines that energy arising from the unity of women will wipe malice off hearth. Arinna series is inspired from. the philosophy of spreading goodness through the hands of women to the world.

hittites JewelryTavananna

Tavananna means queen regnant in Hittite language. In so called series, Canan Klimdar is inspired by Hittite signets. As far as we learned from Hittite writings, the queen and the king have been carrying the royal signet together and the names of both have been placed on the signet. The royal signet impressed on international agreements and official correspondences have been carrying the name of the queen next to that of the king. The best example is the Treaty of Kadesh, which is the first written peace agreement in the history. In B.C. 1260, Hittite king Hattusili III and Hittite queen Puduhepa have stamped the agreement together. It carries the signet of the king on one face and that of the queen on the other.

We wish, today’s modern women become able to have their equal place next to men in every field…

hittites JewelryKaluppa

Kaluppa” means dress or clothes in Hittite language. Hittites have covered their bodies but dressed up their wisdom. Keeping away from wearing too much jewelry, exaggerated or garish dresses, they preferred pass their civilization on to the history. We do not meet too much jewelry in the Hittite remains. Instead, the history and wisdom they conveyed by means of their cuneiforms tell us the Hittite civilization after thousands of years. Low-key but profound life style of Hittites well summarizes us the target to be chosen… Thousands of years ago they have cracked the secret of the matter that not objects, but wisdom and knowledge will give us peace and take the humanity forward. I hope same to today’s civilizations…
