Product description

Review

"There is much in this book that ancient and art historians will find of interest. The method of analyzing Assyrian art in the light of the wide body of textual sources and comparative mythology is most welcome." --Bryn Mawr Classical Review

"All interested in the adaptation of primordial myth to illustrate a later art will find many thought-provoking observations in this book." --American Journal of Archaeology

"The field of ancient Near Eastern studies has traditionally been characterized by the philological virtue of attending closely to the text. Ataç's book demonstrates how this virtue is as relevant to the reading of visual material as it is to the study of verbal records." --Journal of the American Oriental Society

Book Description

The relief slabs that decorated the palaces of the Neo-Assyrian Empire, which emphasized military conquest and royal prowess, have traditionally been understood as statements of imperial propaganda that glorified the Assyrian king. In this book, Mehmet-Ali Ataç argues that the reliefs hold a deeper meaning that was addressed primarily to an internal audience composed of court scholars and master craftsmen.
