Title: Herrscherbild in Mesopotamien AOAT342
Book Condition: New
Braun-Holzinger examines the images depicting rulers in Mesopotamia and Elam during Old-Sumerian, Early-Dynastic, Akkadian, Neo-Sumerian and Old-Babylonian times. Statues and bas-reliefs, presumably issued by the rulers themselves, as well as cylinder seals, predominantly commissioned by their entourage, are anaylsed with regard to the usage of insignia, vestimentary traditions, hairstyles and their preferred gestures and occupations. Attention is also paid to their relation to gods and the reciprocity of the depiction of gods and rulers. Bookseller Inventory # BRAHERRSC
