A polychrome glazed brick from the Ishtar at Babylon, c570 BC. Artist: Werner Forman

A polychrome glazed brick from the Ishtar at Babylon, c570 BC. The Ishtar Gate was constructed during the time of Nebuchadnezzar II. It led into the city of Babylon via the Processional Way, along which statues of the Babylonian gods were paraded during New Year celebrations. The dog-like dragon, similar to those of Iranian mythology of about 2000 BC, is said to be the Murussu dragon, personal symbol of Marduk, the champion of the gods. From the State Museum, Berlin
