We just finished a new animation project! The five-minute film shows the detailed construction of the Stone-Cone Building in Uruk beginning with digging the ditch for the foundation and ending with the finished building enclosed by surrounding walls. At the moment we only show some stills of the film, but you can read all about it in the project-description on our website.
We created this infographic in order to show the amount of building material used in the construction of the building. The dimensions are remarkable. Just imagine the expenditure of human labour…

The enclosure wall was also decorated with mosaic cones. These were green and black clay cones, while the building itself was decorated with stone cones.
