Охота на львов. Барельефы и гравюры.


Neo-Assyrian Culture
Ruler Ashurbanipal
Gypsum wall panel relief: grooms lead horses towards screened enclosure, within which the royal chariot is being prepared for the hunt. The king is handed a bow; also, Assyrians rush up a wooded knoll, either in fright or to get a better view of the lion hunt. The hill is crowned by building, or stela, which is decorated with another picture of the royal lion hunt.

Stone wall panel relief: return from the hunt. Men carry lion. Was on corridor leading to eastern gate out of the palace. The king probably passed this way on his way back from the hunt.

Silver plate showing a king hunting lions; judging by his crown the king may be the Sasanian king Varahran V (popularly known as Bahram Gur) (reigned AD 420-438) whose hunting exploits became legendary.
