The kings of ancient Assyria called themselves powerful warrior[s] with no rival among the princes of the four corners of the earth. The great Assyrian king Ashurnasirpal II (ruled 883 859 B.C.) built a magnificent walled capital at Nimrud (ancient Kalhu), in northern Mesopotamia.
The Museum houses a group of stone relief panels from Ashurnasirpal IIs palace at Nimrud (ancient Kalhu), in northern Mesopotamia. A cuneiform inscription across the surface of the palace reliefs describes it: I founded therein [a palace] as my royal residence (and) for my lordly leisure for eternity. Our stunning jacket design derives from this ancient inscription. Reverses to solid teal. Quilted cotton. Long sleeves and button-and-loop closure. Dry clean only. Imported.
