art perse - Relief of a Persian guard (486 B.C. - 464 B.C.) ()
(taille reelle)

This figure, wearing a quiver and bowcase over his shoulder and a high fluted hat, is a member of the elite guard of the Persian king, the so-called "Ten Thousand Immortals." Presented in profile, with frontal eye and distinctly aquiline nose, the figure gives the impression of calm nobility. Traces of pigment on similar reliefs indicated that this figure must once have been painted with brilliant hues of yellow, blue, and purple. This particular fragment was part of a long frieze at Xerxes' palace that portrayed a single file of the "immortals."

art perse - Striding lion (604 B.C. - 561 B.C.) ()
(taille reelle)

Excavated in 1899 at Babylon by a German expedition under the direction of Robert Koldewey, this panel was one of the 120 similar reliefs that included lions, bulls and dragons. The relief symbolizes life and death, and once decorated the walls along the processional way leading from the Ishtar Gate to the great temple of Marduk, suggested to be the famed "Tower of Babel." A reconstruction of the Ishtar Gate is now in Berlin.
