Khorsabad : de l'analyse spatiale à la 3D

Abstract : We present here a spatial and semiological analysis, associated with a 3D restitution, of the palace of Dur-Sharrukin, built by Sargon II from 713 to 707 BC. The restitution using 3D imagery makes it possible to put in context low-reliefs in architecture, in order to perceive the spatial organization of them, and the structure of the monument’s decoration is thus better understood. This approach shows that these images form an ideological portrait of the king displayed on the walls of the palace, and demonstrates that this portrait is invested with strong symbolism.
