Description
Ever wonder how the ancients moved giant pieces of stone and statue? Fortunately the Assyrians documented their efforts, as seen in this vintage reproduction of a relief from the ruins at Nineveh. Long lines of men are pulling a human-headed winged bull. This vintage engraving, after the drawing by archaeologist Sir Austen Henry Layard (1817 - 1894) was published in an 1873 history of the Middle East and is now in the public domain. Digital restoration by Steven Wynn Photography.
