Assyrian sculpture is one of the highest points (as is gold jewelry discovered in Nimrod, so called Nimrod Gold) of Assyrian art. Animal depictions especially are vivid, powerful and rather realistic, which is a rare occurence in those times. 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.

Assyrian sculpture is the sculpture of the ancient Assyrian states, especially the Neo-Assyrian Empire of 911 to 612 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

E. READE (6-12-00) 79) The distribution of Assyrian sculptures – There remains some confusion over the way in which Assyrian sculptures from the British excavations of 1845-55 came to be so widely distributed around the world. It is in Rawlinson's hand, dated Thursday January 6th 1859, and runs as follows: My dear Panizzi, I think you are wrong in supposing the William and Mary to be freighted with Sculptures from Nineveh∞ - She may have a few such cases on board, say half a dozen, but I doubt if there are more - At any rate the whole.

His second book, How To Be Heard, is a practical guide to improving the vital personal communication skills of speaking and listening. The book includes many simple exercises; interviews with experts; and potent, transformational concepts gleaned from 30 years' experience as a speaker with a passion for listening.

For almost three centuries, until 612 B.C., the small kingdom of Assyria dominated the Middle East, its empire at one point extending from Iran to Egypt. The story of those years--the triumphs of the Assyrian kings in war and peace, their exploits in the hunting field, and the gods who watched over them--were recorded in stone on the walls of a succession of royal palaces. These sculptures, offering eyewitness views of a long-lost civilization, were not rediscovered until the nineteenth century.

The finest collection, transported with great difficulty to Europe, is now preserved at the British Museum. This book describes how the sculptures were found and what they meant to those who created them. It is both a richly illustrated history of Assyrian sculpture in general and a guide to the outstanding collections of the British Museum. For this Second Edition of Assyrian Sculpture, in a new format, the author has updated the text and bibliography.

Perfect, short essay on the subject matter, lots of nice photos as well

I was so pleased with how much I learned about Assyrian art and how interesting it was. I had seen pictures of Assyrian art before, but never knew enough to appreciate it.

The text gives background information to help understand the sculptures, etc. Embedded in the text are numbers corresponding to the images on each page--usually two or three, perhaps even four images. Thus, it is easy to actually see what is being discussed in the text.

The opening chapter, I suppose, is obligatory--recounting the various French, German, and British excavations. The reader could skip this chapter without suffering any loss the rest of the book .

If I could make only one trip to the British museum, I would read this book prior to the visit. As it is, my next trip will be even more interesting, having read the book.

Assyrian sculpture is one of the highest points (as is gold jewelry discovered in Nimrod, so called Nimrod Gold) of Assyrian art. Animal depictions especially are vivid, powerful and rather realistic, which is a rare occurence in those times. 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.

As for depicting the ancient Assyrians as cruel looters, etc, they have not done anything what was not customary during those times and they were not as cruel as the Bible depicts them. The Bible was written by a nation which was conquered by Assyrian, that's why we hear tales of Assyrian cruelty for more than 2500 years already. But writers of the Bible have done the same things to the nations they conquered - khanaan, etc. So stop it already!

Can't you just enjoy beautiful art without spilling out your ingrained historical hatred?
