One of the most striking objects at WCMA is the enormous bas-relief of the King of Nimrud from the Iron Age of Man, approximately 900 B.C.E. To be in its presence is, for me, an extraordinary experience of being transported in space and time.

As with our pieces from the Bolles-Rogers family and John Davis Hatch, sometimes the story behind how objects came into the museum’s collection or life events of the donors can be very interesting. Dr. John Henry Haynes donated to the museum thirty-six Mesopotamian clay objects with cuneiform inscriptions.
