Figs 2-4: Painted bas-reliefs from Koyunjik [Kuyunjik, Nineveh]. Fig 5: Painted ornament from Nimroud [Nimrud]. Fig 6: Glazed brick from Khorsabad. Figs 7-10: Painted ornaments from Nimroud. Figs 11-12: Sacred trees. Painted bas-reliefs from Nimroud. Fig 13: Painted ornament from Nimroud. Fig 14: Enamelled brick from Khorsabad...The excavations on the banks of the Tigris at Khorsabad, Nimroud and Koyunjik brought to light a great number of architectural remains, paintings and sculptures of Assyrian origin, which give us an idea of the magnificence and the exuberant luxury of the buildings of this nation. Assyrian ornament certainly betrays Egyptian influence, but there is no denying its originality...The winged male figure in the midst of our plate symbolizes the soul'. Plate 3 from "The Historic Styles of Ornament" translated from the German of H. Dolmetsch. [B.T. Batford, London, 1898]
