Assyrian War-Chariot Charging the For Wall Sculpture
similar to ancient persian flavour
better than I expected. highlights a civilisation which was advanced as others of different eras. Hopefully will remain intact during current upheavals

I purchased this item based on the Reviews and I am NOT disappointed. Every male that walks in my home take notice. No American Man Cave should be without it, so I do recommend as a gift. For people who love to paint, it would look excellent in Ivory and gold trim. I also love the motion of the sculpture. Everytime I pass by it I feel like I'm going places while thinking of distant times. I also wonder why men of all ages cant help gravitating to it. Its one sexy piece!

They see me rollin'.
Look, you're a badass and you know it. But sometimes you need reminded of it. Personally, I have this hanging above my computer monitor next to the window, just in case I forget. This relief is subtle, yet it gets the point across. The muscled steeds are very dark against the black background, so make sure you have sufficient lighting to get the full effect. Good quality, would recommend for anyone that appreciates ancient warriors or badassery.

Very nicely reproduced.
Great attention to detail, some of the gold paint slightly overlaps onto the faux ebony, but overall nicely done. I especially liked the surface texturing of the background making it look like part of a rough wall.

Nice Wall Art For My Formal Outdoor Patio And Garden
This Assyrian wall sculpture looks like the original minus one thing: The gold doesn't look like the original 24 kt gold, it looks more like bronze or copper which most likely is due to a lack of thorough research since it does come from the Bronze Age period. Otherwise it is fine, it's beautiful in spite of that and nobody knows unless they've seen the original and know what the yellow applique is. I found this to be an excellent decor piece for my formal patio. It stands up to weather as long as it is placed out of the direct sun rays for most of the afternoon, an easy thing to do. Friends and guests always comment about how beautiful it is and how it compliments my patio and garden. I would recommend this to anyone who has an Asian decor that originates in Assyria, Persia, or other ancient Middle East design. For some people it is probably fine for a more contemporary design as well. It is very durable and is large enough to be noticed but not so large that it dominates a room or patio.
