Stone lion's head, Neo-Assyrian, about 680-670 BC, From Sippar, southern Iraq. This lion's head of white limestone comes from the Temple of Shamash. Known as the Ebabbar ('Shining Temple'), it was one of the most important traditional and prestigious religious centres in Mesopotamia. The head has a worn inscription naming the Assyrian king Esarhaddon (680-669 BC) and his father Sennacherib. It is not clear, therefore, whether this is a Babylonian or an Assyrian piece. From the British Museum's collection.
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
