This gypsum wall panel came from the North-West Palace of Ashurnasirpal II (883 - 859 BCE) at Nimrud. Ths so-called "Standard Inscription" of Ashurnasirpal II runs horizontally across the lower part. The king wears a diadem and holds a bucket in his left hand; the right arm is raised in salutation or prayer gesture. He also wears a below-knee length kilt and a fringed robe. The depicted man may also represent a crown prince. From the North-West Palace at Nimrud, in modern-day Ninawa Governorate, Iraq. Neo-Assyrian period reign of Ashurnasirpal II (883-859 BCE).
