    Created around 645 BC, when the Assyrian empire was at its height, the famous lion hunt reliefs in the British Museum once adorned the walls of King Ashurbanipal's palace in Nineveh. They Are vivid yet unsettling; they capture the nobility of theking and his dramatic defeat of animals, superbly sculpted to reveal their raw emotion and movement, which posed a real danger to his people. With the help of those who feel so passionate about them today, including museum curators and experts from a variety of fields, this book and DVD set explains the significance of these alabaster reliefs, their context, discovery and why they can justly be acclaimed as masterpieces.
