EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a remarkable Hittite relief, depicting the powerful weather-god Teshub with his awe-inspiring lightning. Preserved within the esteemed collection at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin, this stone sculpture is an extraordinary testament to the religious beliefs and artistic prowess of the ancient Hittites. Carved meticulously from basalt, every intricate detail of this relief comes to life. The skillful use of color enhances its visual impact, as vibrant hues highlight Teshub's divine presence. Standing tall and majestic, he exudes an aura of authority and strength that commands reverence. As one gazes upon this masterpiece, it becomes evident that religion played a significant role in Hittite society. The depiction of Teshub as a deity reflects their deep-rooted belief in celestial powers governing natural phenomena such as weather and lightning. This relief serves not only as a representation of their faith but also as an expression of their artistic ingenuity. The craftsmanship exhibited here is truly exceptional; each stroke chiseled with precision and finesse. It stands as a testament to the mastery achieved by Hittite sculptors who sought to immortalize their gods through these magnificent works of art. In capturing this momentous piece through photography, CM Dixon allows us to appreciate its grandeur even from afar. Letting our eyes wander over every curve and line etched into stone transports us back thousands of years when deities were worshipped fervently amidst thunderous skies – reminding us once again
