******** The Standard of Ur, 'Peace' side. From Ur, southern Iraq, about 2600-2400 BCE. It was found in one of the largest graves in the Royal Cemetery at Ur, lying in the corner of a chamber above the right shoulder of a man. Its original function is not yet understood. Maybe it was carried on a pole as a standard, or it formed the soundbox of a musical instrument. The main panels are known as 'War' and 'Peace'. The 'Peace' panel depicts animals, fish and other goods brought in procession to a banquet. Seated figures, wearing woollen fleeces or fringed skirts, drink to the accompaniment of a musician playing a lyre

Egyptian art Fowling in the marshes: fragment of wall painting from the tomb of Nebamun. Thebes, Egypt, 18th Dynasty, around 1350 BCE. Nebamun stands on a small papyrus boat with his wife Hatshepsut behind him and his son below. The hieroglyphs below Nebamun's raised arm describe him as 'taking recreation and seeing what is good in the place of eternity', that is, in the Afterlife.The scene would have been balanced on the left by one of Nebamun spearing fish: the end of the spear where it enters the water is just visible

******** Seal of Adda (seal impression). Mesopotamia, Akkadian, about 2300-2200 BCE. It shows four of the principal Mesopotamian deities. The cuneiform inscription identifies the owner of the seal as Adda, who is described as dubsar, or 'scribe'.  The figure with streams of water and fish flowing from his shoulders is Ea, god of subterranean waters and of wisdom, called Enki by the Sumerians. Behind Ea stands Usimu, his two-faced vizier (chief minister). Ishtar, the goddess of fertility (indicated by the cluster of dates) and war (the weapons rising from her shoulders) stands winged for victory. The sun-god Shamash (known to the Akkadians as Utu), who has rays rising from his shoulder, is busy cutting his way through the mountains in order to rise at dawn. The god armed with a bow and quiver has not been identified with certainty, but may represen

******** The Standard of Ur, 'War'. From Ur, southern Iraq, about 2600-2400 BCE.  Found in one of the largest graves in the Royal Cemetery at Ur, lying in the corner of a chamber above the right shoulder of a man. Its original function is not yet understood. Leonard Woolley, the excavator at Ur, imagined that it was carried on a pole as a standard, hence its common name. Another theory suggests that it formed the soundbox of a musical instrument. When found, the two main panels, known as 'War' and 'Peace', had been crushed together by the weight of the soil, and the present restoration is only a best guess as to how it originally appeared. 'War' shows one of the earliest representations of a Sumerian army. Chariots, each pulled by four donkeys, trample enemies; infantry with cloaks carry spears; enemy soldiers are killed with axes - 3/4 view

******** Foundation figure of Ur-Nammu, the ruler of Ur (about 2112-2095 BC). From Uruk, southern Iraq Third Dynasty of Ur, c. 2100-2000 BCE. The king is shown as a temple builder with a basket of earth to make bricks . It was made for burial in the foundations of a temple of Uruk. The cuneiform inscription around and over the king's body states that Ur-Nammu dedicated the figure to Inana (Ishtar), the patron deity of Uruk. It also records the restoration of her temple called Eanna 'the house of heaven'. Her name appears to mean 'the lady of heaven'. She was associated with the goddess Ishtar and the planet known to us as Venus
