UN Official: ISIS Destruction of Ancient City of Nimrud, Artifacts a ‘War Crime’

I first learned about Nimrud in an ancient art history class. Here are some of the reasons why (from Wikipedia Commons) ...

- Lamassu, Musée de Pergame, Berlin

- Ivory depiction of lion eating a man. British Museum

- Winged bearded genies with different attributes, Nimrud, North-West Palace of King Ashurnasirpal II

- Assyrian relief ( AS1) from the North-West palace in Nimrud, National Museum of Denmark

- Nimrud Lamassu at the North West Palace of Ashurnasirpal
