Assyrian Gallery: Khorsabad

The two reliefs in this alcove once decorated the courtyard outside the throne room of the Assyrian king Sargon II (721-705 B.C.). The relief to the left portrays the king dressed in heavily ornamented robes, attended by an official. The relief slabs in front of the king, like the one displayed to the right, showed foreigners bringing tribute. Beyond the alcove one can see the western end of the gallery, with other Khorsabad reliefs, and the alcove of objects from ancient Israel and Palestine.
