Background information

This piece is based on the actual carving found as part of a booty cache at a remote outpost known as Arslan Tash in Syria.

Hazael was mentioned several times in the biblical old testament and contemporaneous Assyrian inscriptions. He ruled for 42 years as a powerful king of Aram with a variety of military campaigns against foes including Israel and Assyrian forces.

In this rare depiction he wears a long robe with fine tassle stitching on the hem. He stands in a typical pose of the era appearing full frontal except for the Egyptian style profile shown on sandled feet.

A woven plant motif creates a decorative border and Is a mild reference to fertility.
