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. The main scene is within the sunken square area and a minor scene was carved on the right, outside of this square.
This image was taken on April 22, 2002 CE while making a replica by the Directorate of Antiquities of Sulaymaniyah. The replica is still in situ here, over the ancient relief. The main scene is thought to be Lulubian. Recent images of the relief reveal modern white and yellow paints, which are not seen here. Late 3rd millennium to early 2nd millennium BCE. Sulaymaniyah, Kurdistan, Iraq. Photo courtesy The Sulaymaniyah Museum, Iraq.
