3/15/11 Procession Scene o Prisoners being led in with booty o Point empires do not exist by being nice War reliefs o One with Assyrian attack machine Assyrians displayed as stern and disciplined Defenders appear to be lacking uniformity o Proportionality of size does not matter for Assyrian art o Can draw comparisons to Eanatum’s stele Very old idea Portrays soldiers confidently defeating enemies o No cuneiform labels exist to tell us if they were historical events May also just be generic battle scenes o Assyrian soldiers always move to right As one entered throne room they would see Assyrian army charging towards them o Can be among most confusing works Shalmaneser III (859-824) --- “Fort Shalmaneser” at Nimrud --- Palace at Balawat Fort Shalmaneser o Continued to use father’s palace for certain functions Kings liked to build their own palaces as well o Doesn’t display the wall sculptures that Asurnasirpal’s had o Very much so carries a military aspect to it
