Caption

Gypsum bas relief of the aqueducts and canals built in 645-640bc by Sennacharib at the ancient Assyrian city of Nineveh, in present day Iraq. This image, presented at the British Museum's Ashurbanipal exhibition, inovatively shows a display of the relief illuminated to simulate how these panels may have been painted when new. The colours are based on surviving fragments of colour pigment. Top right of the panel shows the Jerwan aqueduct supplying water to the city's orchards and gardens.
