Now this is a pretty cool dad move. Happy Father’s Day to all the great dads out there like Lynell Jinks, who creates beautiful art on his kids’ lunch bags to remind them to be proud of their own gifts.
In ancient Assyria, kings could prove their strength to their people by hunting lions. Although this may be shocking to modern eyes, killing lions represented the king’s ability to protect his nation against the dangers of the world. King Ashurbanipal commissioned a series of relief carvings for his palace showing himself hunting lions – even strangling them with his bare hands! Although gruesome in places, these sublimely carved reliefs are some of the most famous examples of Assyrian art. Discover the world of #Ashurbanipal and see amazing ancient artworks in our autumn exhibition – book tickets via the link in our bio.
