Astounding Ancient Assyria: The Grand Palace of Assurnasirpal

Assyrian relief representing the king Ashurnasirpal II killing lions.

Frieze of Assurbanipal (668-627 BCE) hunting lions, detail. In ancient Assyria, lion-hunting was considered the sport of kings; a symbol of the king’s ability to guard the nation. Numerous friezes from the North Palace of Ashurbanipal (in Nineveh) have been found, depicting the king hunting and killing lions. The hunting scenes, full of tension and realism, rank among the finest achievements of Assyrian Art.
