Title: Mari (Larsa period), Palace of Zimrilim : Fragment found in dumps in courtyard 106, c. 2040-1870 BC
Author(s): Strommenger, Eva
Photographer: Arthur Llewellyn Basham
Keywords: Gudea & Ur II-Isin periods, c. 2290-2040;paintings;book scan
Description: The fragment, which is not complete, has been reconstructed from many small pieces. This shows the only completely preserved head. This sacrificial procession is painted on plaster in black, white light and dark red ochre watercolours. The wall-paintings almost certainly belong to the last phase of Mari's independence, before it was conquered by Hammurabi, the King of Babylon, in his 34th year.
