This book contains 20 full-color postcards featuring the animals that decorated the treasures of Ur—the gold and lapis lazuli bull-head from the Great Lyre, the gold and lapis lazuli statuette of the "Ram in the Thicket," intricately carved animals and human-headed beasts from the inlaid plaques and engraved seal stones, delicate molded bulls and stags from pendants and clothing attachments, the silver lion head, and many more . . .
