A Giant made from Green quartz from the ancient beliefs of Syria. He is included in a story in ‘Song of Ullikummi’ in Hurrian mythology. He was created by the father of all gods but was disliked by the new gods. As Ullikummi grew, he pushed the earth down through the ocean and pushed the heavens too high. The new gods made many unsuccessful attempts to kill Ullikummi. Eventually they cut at his ankles, causing him to tumble over into the ocean where his body drowned.
