Maltai Reliefs

The reliefs were carved in the 7th century B.C. during the reign of the Assyrian king Sennacherib. Reliefs consist of three panels showing King Sennacherib facing a procession of Assyrian gods depicted in human form and mounted on animals. The panels are cut 200 meters high into the rocky side of the Zawa Mountain, in Duhok’s village of Geverke.
