King Ashurbanipal

This is a bronze bust of King Ashurbanipal - an Assyrian Empire ruler - in the library of AUAF that I've been taking photos of to put in the doco. It's not the real thing, its modern, but looks pretty convincing. The guy who did it is apparently living in Mexico and is now completely nuts.

I interviewed a young guy here named Ashurbanipal. His mum refuses to shorten it, so he gets called that, the whole thing. Ashurbanipal. Assyrian nationalism; I love it.
