That’s a fantastic point! Humans seem to have a ‘thing’ about removing the eyes on images of people we don’t like. If images of rulers had wide eyes to show that they were always watching, and always taking in god’s will, their enemies would destroy the eyes to break their connection to god and stop them from looking at the earth. We get creeped out by pictures where the eyes seem to follow you, I wonder if Mesopotamians did too?
