Cylinder Seal with Winged Bull


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description The Assyrian empire rose to power in the Middle Assyrian period. During this time, the art of the cylinder seal increased in naturalism, movement, and sculptural quality. This seal exemplifies these trends as a winged bull alights dramatically, one foreleg folding under the body and one hind leg kicking upward.
