Details

Assyrian King Ashurbanipal Hunt Nineveh Relief - Reproduction of Original based on an ancient artifact housed at the British Museum, London, 645 B.C. From Ashurbanipal Palace, Nineveh. This fragment from a wall originally found in the Assyrian palace of Nineveh depicts King Ashurbanipal as part of a larger scene hunting wild asses with the help of hounds. These animals were considered a nuisance and their killing was a meritorious activity suitable for the king. Ashurbanipal reigned at a time when the Assyrian empire was at its zenith. He waged wars against the Elamites, defeating them in several occasions and also quelled revolts in Babylon thus keeping the empire under his firm control. After his reign however, the Assyrian empire fell apart in the span of twenty years.

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.
