"Commissioned by powerful kings between the ninth and seventh centuries BC, when the small kingdom of Assyria in northern Iraq expanded through conquest to dominate the area from Egypt to Iran, the carved images are imperssive and eloquent witnesses to their remarkable achievements. Paul Collins expresses the historical context of the sculptures and surveys the artistic traditions in which they are rooted."--BOOK JACKET.
