The Hittites have left us with some of the most endearing art of the ancient world. The Hittites were incredibly superstitious peoples and made virtually created a God for nearly ever object and place in their lives. As they conquered people they adopted their Gods so the Hittite pantheon is vast. The Hittites depicted their Gods in their art and sculpted relief panels. These relief sculpture panels lined the walls of the Hittite palaces. Monumental Hittite art relief panels show the complexity of Hittite beliefs. They depict half man half beast Gods as well as extremely creative depictions of all sorts of deities. The child like naivety of the Hittite style makes us warm to them as a people but in reality the Hittites ran a brutal war machine that swept out of Anatolia to become one of the great Empires of the ancient Near East.
