‘Assyromania’ swept the UK in the mid-19th century, with artists and designers creating works inspired by ancient Assyrian objects.

Winged bulls, lion hunts and sacred imagery all adorned fine jewellery in the Victorian period – this dazzling selection was made in the UK in the 1870s.

Follow ancient Assyria’s rise, fall and revival in our five-star #Ashurbanipal exhibition. Ends soon – book tickets via the link in our bio.

Knew of your wonderful holdings but not the mania of the late 19th-cent. Very interesting.

In Persian traditional names we hear names of people with suffixes or prefixes of “Lion”, and some nomads made stone lions and put them on the graves of brave warriors, and in Bakhtiari nomads funerary poems brave warriors are called “lions” or “yellow lions “.
