Ooh, I like how you pointed out the similarities with the animals. That makes me think of Assurnasirpal II Hunting Lions vs Ti Watching Hippopotamus Hunt– very similar goals in mind, displaying power and contrasting them with the strong animals while maintaining the hierarchy of scale. It’s amazing to see that cultures throughout time respect the power and might of animals and use it to legitimize themselves.
