Details

Assyrian Ashurnasirpal Nimrud Sculpture Relief - Reproduction of Original from Nimrud, 865 B.C., Based on an ancient artifact housed at the British Museum, London. This Assyrian stone relief from the northwestern palace at Nimrud shows two nearly asymmetrical carved figures of King Ashurnasirpal II facing a stylized sacred tree and flanked by protective deities. The king is in his role as high priest and he is lifting his hand in worship towards a winged disk where the god Ashur resides. Ashur is the supreme national god of Assyria (Ashur). The sacred tree is related to the palmette symbol and represents the fertility of the Earth, especially the land of Ashur. The two protective deities are called "Apkalle". They have the horned cap of divinity and hold a cone in the raised hand (to provide magical protection) and a bucket in the left.

Specification

Made of cast stone. Cast stone is a type of gypsum cement whose properties are much different from plaster of paris which is what most sculpture shops use. Unlike plaster, which is soft, light and weak, cast stone is hard, heavy and strong. Cast stone feels like, and is heavy like a real stone would be, which can be experienced as soon you try to lift it.
