Pictures photos images of Hittite art, artefacts, art and relief sculptures exhibited at the Ankara Anatolian Civilisations Museum, Turkey. The best on line gallery of Hittite art from the Ankara Anatolian Civilizations Museum. The Ankara Anatolian Civilisations Museum has an incredible collection of Hittite art orthostat stone panels that is one of the most important Hittite art collections in the world. Added to this are many Hittite archaeological grave goods finds that show the skill and diversity of Hittite potters and artisans. The Ankara Anatolian Civilizations Museum also houses many of the cuneiform tablets from Hattusa which are still being translated by academics making the museum one of the major centres of Hittite scholarship. The museums collections of Hittite art include sculpted panels from Karkemish, Aslantepe & Alacahöyük. These Hittite sculptures show the full range of the Hittite artists creativity with Bas reliefs of Hittite Gods and with scenes from the history of Gilgamesh. Hittite art has its own distinctive style and the vast amount of Hittite Gods forced Hittite artists to be creative. To modern eyes Hittite art can look baffling with creatures that are half man, beast, bird and animal. Hittite sculpture depicts mythical beings in a very direct way and in an endearing style that still holds the viewers attention 3000 years after it was created. Unfortunately modern eyes can only guess what Hittite art is depicting but we still get a strong impression of a people absorbed by mystical stories of their Gods. A visit to the Ankara Anatolian Civilisations Museum Hittite artefacts collection is a wonderful experience for Hittite art addicts and for those that want to discover the artworks of a great ancient civilisation.
