Glazed bricks depicting the Aurochs, which were part of the Ishtar Gate in Babylon during the reign of Nebuchadnezzar II (604–562 BC), are significant historical artifacts. The Ishtar Gate was one of the eight gateways to the city of Babylon and was dedicated to the Babylonian goddess Ishtar. The Aurochs, a species of wild cattle, were sacred animals in ancient Mesopotamian culture and were often depicted in art and architecture. The glazed bricks with Aurochs motifs were meticulously crafted and arranged to create an impressive and ornate entrance to the city.Image ID#: 8469 / Category: Arts / Price: 499$
