"Lemme Go, Ya Stupid Butthead"

Here’s the third image that I mentioned in my entry “Fun in Mesopotamia.” These incredibly detailed Assyrian reliefs usually depict mighty warrior kings fighting and storming cities and enslaving and executing and skinning their enemies, and they usually look fairly stiff and static, but here I think the artist really captures the spirit of the lion cub being held by a warrior. Notice that the ancient Assyrians wore wrist watches!
