This rock relief lies within Darband-i Basara, which transects the upper part of Qaradagh Mountain Ridge. The rock relief is composed of two separate scenes. The main scene is within the sunken square area and a minor scene was carved on the right, outside of this square. The main scene is thought to be Lulubian. Water was poured on the relief to highlight its details before taking the photo. The white and yellow paints are modern. Late 3rd millennium to early 2nd millennium BCE. Sulaymaniyah, Kurdistan, Iraq.
