Standing Statue of Manishtushu Trampling the Defeated
Sb 48
Richelieu room 8
The base of this limestone statue shows the king trampling over the stretched-out bodies of his defeated enemies.
The name of their city is
engraved over them.
It illustrates these words of the psalmist that the Apostle Paul was to apply to Jesus Christ: “The utterance of Jehovah to my Lord is: “Sit at my right hand until I place your enemies as a stool for your feet.” - Psalm 110:1, NWT; Hebrews 10:12, 13.

In 1924, the Louvre Museum acquired
the body of this statuette from clandestine
excavations in Telloh; the head, which entered
into a private American collection,
was bought by the Metropolitan Museum of Art
in New York in 1947.
Since 1974, an agreement between the two museums allows the sculpture to be displayed in its entirety in Paris then in New York alternately, for a period of five years.
The base of this statue of the Prince of Lagash is also engraved with kneeling tribute bearers.
