The Black Obelisk of Shalmaneser III stock photo

The Black Obelisk of Shalmaneser III "The ""Black Obelisk"" of Shalmaneser III (reigned 858-824 BC) is a black limestone Neo-Assyrian bas-relief sculpture from Nimrud (ancient Kalhu), in northern Iraq. It is the most complete Assyrian obelisk yet discovered, and is historically significant because it displays the earliest ancient depiction of an Israelite, Jehu the son of Omri, as recorded in the Bible. Tribute offerings are shown being brought from identifiable regions and peoples. It was erected as a public monument in 825 BCE at a time of civil war." Obelisk Stock Photo
