Today I learned two things: that there is an art museum in Bloomington, Indiana, with a nice collection on-line, and that there is Bloomington :-)

So, here we go 🧵

A set of jewelry from ancient #Mesopotamia, 2700-2300 BCE, Sumer #Iraq
The necklace with (the seemingly) very large lapis lazuli beads is particularly impressive. It also consists of hematite and gold beads.
In addition five gold spiral hair(?) rings.

Very sweet carnelian bust of a child #Roman 2nd C BCE - 2nd C CE artmuseum.indiana.edu/collections-on…
There is no curator's comment here, but such children's faces were very common in the Roman world and depicted cupid / Eros. They were worn for good luck, set in rings and pendants. Image

Dominación y brutalidad son marcas de identidad para garantizar el control absoluto del mundo. En la Antigüedad, eso empezaba por dominar a los monstruos de la Naturaleza.

Hoy os hablamos de la caza del león en #Asiria 🦁
🖼️ Via @britishmuseum

#historia #mesopotamia

⬇️HILO⬇️
La caza de leones era una actividad muy extendida en Mesopotamia. Era un símbolo de realeza y superioridad ante el mundo natural. Tal fue su popularidad que tenía una iconografía específica: el rey matando a un león rampante

🖼️Impresión de sello asirio (715 AEC) @britishmuseum
Era una actividad de propaganda desmesurada. Las escenas se representaban sobre paredes y puertas para recordar a quienes las contemplasen que el asirio había sido bendecido con virilidad, fuerza y poder por los dioses

Cylinder seals are a neglected topic at best of times. I've never seen a thread about them. So here are 5 reasons why I think these things should be much better known in media studies (and not just because they are very ancient and come mostly from #Mesopotamia). (1/5)
Quite indestructible, these tiny carved stones are our main source of knowledge for about 3000 years of image-making (c. 3500 - 500 BC), from the time of the world's first cities to the Persian Empire. But they also had many functions, and were not simply "art objects" (2/5)
Cylinder seals are among the earliest devices for mechanically reproducing complex images; done by rolling the seal onto a strip or block of clay to make raised figures and signs appear (modern impressions on display below). So, they stand at the beginning of print media (3/5)
