The siege of Lachish 3D Model
The Lachish relief is found in gallery 10b of the British Museum, and they were originally discovered in the South West palace of Nineveh. This set of gypsum wall panels depicts the Assyrian army laying siege to the town of Lachish (modern-day Tell ed-Duweir, Israel), found about 40 kilometres SW from Jerusalem (in 701 BC). In this depiction, we can see soldiers storming the town walls, and prisoners taken can be seen being expelled into exile, whilst others are flayed.
The relief was created for the walls of the great palace of the Assyrian king, Sennacherib, in Nineveh. This set of panels provides propaganda to demonstrate why rebellion against the King was futile.
