The Excavations at Nimurd - Kalku

Layard at Nineveh 19th c. The depth of the excavations, many of the treasures are in museums around the world. Recovered gold from Nimrud, there is the gold ewer. The seal of Queen Hama. Nimrud lense. The Crespi human headed bull. There are many Grand Tour replicas of these, but the Crespi bull`s face is very similar to the other Crespi cast pieces such as the face from the young pharaoh on the throne and the face of David and Goliath - it is by the same artist - Ecuador.
