The Lulubian Rock Relief of Darband-i Basara

This rock relief lies within Darband-i Basara, which transects the upper part of Qaradagh Mountain Ridge. The rock relief is composed of two separate scenes. This is the main scene and it lies within the sunken square area. The relief is thought to be Lulubian. Water was poured on the relief to highlight its details before taking the photo. The relief is very much weathered and there are no traces of any inscription. The white and yellow paints are modern. Late 3rd millennium to early 2nd millennium BCE. Sulaymaniyah, Kurdistan, Iraq.
