Incredible use of light in the Ashurbanipal exhibition at the British Museum, bringing the ancient Assyrian carvings to life.
And another ancient carving brought to life with light projection.
It really helped pick out the storytelling power of these carvings too, which once lined the walls of royal palaces.
I've spent the last four years researching these carvings, King Ashurbanipal & the Assyrian empire for my next novel, and this is the most beautiful use of the artefacts I've ever seen. Great work from the @britishmuseum.
