This bas-relief is a small reproduction of a relief of Gilgamesh from the palace of Sargon II (Assyria, c. 765 BC – 705 BC), which is in the Louvre Museum.
Gilgamesh is a semi-legendary character from Sumerian mythology who has achieved fame above all as the protagonist of the Poem of Gilgamesh, considered the oldest literary work in the world, written on clay tablets around 2500 BC. It narrates the exploits of Gilgamesh, king of Uruk, who, after the death of his friend the giant Enkidu, sets out in search of immortality, for which he meets the survivor of the Flood, Utnapishtim, the Sumerian Noah.
