More carved ivory has been found at the Assyrian capital city of Kalhu, better known at Nimrud, in northern Iraq than anywhere else in the ancient Near East. However, the majority was brought there by the Assyrian kings as gift, tribute or booty and forms, therefore, an unparalleled record of the minor arts of the areas conquered or controlled by Assyria.
