      Besides the reliefs in Sennacherib's palace, the siege was also depicted in the Bible in the Book of Kings, and in the Taylor Prism [see British Museum, online]. This stone relief, found in Ninevah, depicts the torture and relocation of Jewish citizens of Lachish at the hands of Assyrians. Sennacherib was the son and successor of the Neo-Assyrian king Sargon II, who had reigned as king of Assyria from to BC and as king of Babylon from to BC. The identity of Sennacherib's mother is not entirely certain. Though the most popular view historically has been that Sennacherib was the son of Sargon's wife Ataliya, this is probably impossible.

Part of the Lion Hunt of Ashurbanipal, c. – BC. Assyrian sculpture is the sculpture of the ancient Assyrian states, especially the Neo-Assyrian Empire of to BC, which ruled modern Iraq, Syria, and much of Iran.

It forms a phase of the art of Mesopotamia, differing in particular because of its much greater use of stone and gypsum alabaster for large sculpture. The Russian writer Ljubimov wrote in his book about ancient art, that if there were only one sculpture of this nation (The wounded Lioness) discovered we would know that the Assyrians had great art and thus the great soul.

This book's fime illustrations prove Ljubimov's point.5/5(3). Sennacherib was the king of Assyria from – BC and was famous for his building projects.

The rooms and courtyards of his Neo-Assyrian Southwest Palace at Nineveh were decorated with a series of detailed carved stone panels. Many of these stone panels are on display in Room 9. The relief sculptures that decorated Assyrian palaces represent the high point of Mesopotamian art of the first millennium BCE, both for their artistic quality and their vivid depictions of warfare, rituals, mythology, hunting, and other aspects of Assyrian life.

Together, the sculptures constitute some of the most impressive and eloquent. The archaeologists found a marble inscription of Sennacherib’s son, Esarhaddon, that they believe dates to B.C., when the palace was part of the city of Nineveh.

They also found a stone sculpture of an Assyrian demi-goddess depicted as sprinkling the water of life to protect humans in her care, The Telegraph : Julie Borg.In discussions of Assyrian art the term sculpture is used to describe sculptures in the round as well as bas-reliefs, and both are treated in this book.

These reliefs are often accompanied by a cuneiform text, which can serve as a caption for the actions depicted but can also be part of a continuous text describing the other actions of the king.So far the only widely accessible book to include more than a small selection of the wall-slabs has been Sidney Smith's Assyrian Sculptures in the British Museum from Shalmaneser III to Sennacherib; interest otherwise has until recently been sporadic and, on the whole, highly discriminating.
