A common theme in these ivories is the “woman at the window” (a specific motif that can be directly associated with a couple of biblical accounts, not least that of Jezebel in 2 Kings 9:30, as well as Sisera’s mother: Judges 5:28). The “woman at the window” scenes discovered at Arslan Tash and Nimrud are quite different stylistically to the “woman at the window” found in Samaria.
