Created by an Israeli tribe of woodcutters, the Natinim from the ancient city of Gibeon.
In a story in the Bible, God stopped the sun from setting so that the Israelis could defeat their enemy in daylight.
The ring stops the sun from setting, making a time loop from the moment it's activated up until the time the sun is supposed to set.
However, the more loops it's put through, the harder it is to deactivate it. It is the main artifact in the online motion comic, Time Out.
Real World ConnectionEdit
So the sun stood still and the moon stayed in place until the nation of Israel had defeated its enemies. Is this event not recorded in [The Book of Jashar]? The sun stayed in the middle of the sky, and it did not set as on a normal day.
