This relief is one of 3 large slabs depicting Assyrian men, with their horses, hunting in what appears to be a pine forest. From the Royal Palace of Sargon II at Khorsabad, in modern-day Nineveh Governorate, Iraq. Circa 710 BCE. On display at Room X of the Iraqi Museum in Baghdad, Republic of Iraq.
