Senacherib's Palace Kouyunjik Nr.Mosul, Iraq - c. 800 BC

Careful investigations on the actual site have resulted in this restoration of Sennacherib's palace, from a sketch by J. Ferguson. The building is very different from the heavier structure erected by his father, Sargon II, at Khorsabad, and a greater knowledge of the artistic process which led to this revolution would go far to make the past live for us.
