This rock relief depicts a victorious king, most probably the Akkadian king Naram-Sin, after defeating the Lulubis, ancient tribes lived at the Zagros mountains, western Iran. The relief was made on the surface of a mountain cliff of modern-day Qopi Qoshk, Darband-i-Gawr, Qaradagh's mountains, Sulaymaniyah, Iraq. The king stands on enemy corpses.
