The Musée du Louvre holds one of the most significant collections of Akkadian royal statuary’s extant vestiges. This article coincides with the restoration and reassembly of a seated statue of King Manishtushu, the third monarch of the dynasty, considered one of the main promoters of this outstanding art. The author takes a new, overall look at royal imagery based on a thorough study of the seated statue, now on view in the Louvre’s permanent display.
