Wall Relief

710BC-705BC

Neo-Assyrian

Stone wall-panel depicting a eunuch in relief: this head, which is over lifesize, belonged to a figure of a eunuch, one of the attendants of the Assyrian king. He wears an earring of a classic Assyrian type, and his curled hair-style is intermediate between that of previous reigns and the shorter squared cut which became fashionable in the seventh century. A pattern of rosettes is embroidered on the neck of his robe.
