These 1-meter high basalt reliefs depict Assyrian warriors of different ranks in procession with a royal chariot led by the commander in chief of the Assyrian army. These reliefs were acquired and gathered during the years 1848, 1946, 1948, 1982, and 1995 to reassemble the entire walls. From the palace of the Assyrian king Tiglath-PIleser III (744-727 BCE), ancient Hadatu (modern Arslan Tash), Neo-Assyrian era, Mesopotamia.
