The 6000 Year old Rama and Hanuman carvings in Silemania, Iraq

Here is the real story behind this 6000-year-old carving which has been circulated as Image of Rama and Hanuman by many websites.

The carving depicts an Akkadian warrior tramping a defeated Hurrian while another Hurrian begs for his mercy.

he looks as if he is asking for mercy! The helmet and his dress may point towards a Hurrian soldier. The relief en face. Photo courtesy Mr. Osman Toofiq, Assistant Lecturer, College of Archaeology, Sulaymaniyah University.

The victorious man wears a kilt, which ends shortly above his knees. The waist is narrow and there is a multi-layered belt around the mid-abdomen. There is an axe attached at the waist behind the right side of the belt. He does not seem to wear sandals or any other shoes.

The overall depiction of this non-bearded, bare-chested, and bare-footed man reminds us of early Sumerian rulers or warriors.
