Hi Kaitlyn, I really appreciate your point about the sheer magnitude of the sculptures and structures used by the Mesopotamian rulers. They add a sense of grandness to the areas in which they were built, and so might serve as a valuable psychological tool to help reinforce the grandness of the ones who had them built. Size is frequently associated with power in a lot of cultures as well, and I think this really drives that point home.
