ART 114-351/Skillman

My description will be of the Processional Way, Babylon. This piece is made completely of brick and forms the inner wall to a tunnel-like walkway leading into the city of Babylon. It pictures a lion, which is a powerful beast that kings would hunt in this time, and the idea that you would walk along these picturings of lions as you walked into the city only proved to further show the conquest over these animals. It is made up of yellows, tans, blacks, and blues, the last important considering that the availability of that color was rare and could only be afforded by the wealthy.
