Best Answer...

Answer:

The Royal Standard of Ur is a Sumerian artifact excavated from what had been the Royal Cemetery in the ancient city of Ur (modern-day Iraq south of Baghdad).
The artifact was found in one of the largest royal graves at Ur, associated with Ur-Pabilsag, a king who died around 2550 BC.

It is a hollow wooden box measuring 21.59 centimetres wide by 49.53 centimetres long, inlaid with a mosaic of shell, red limestone and lapis lazuli.
Inlaid mosaic panels cover each long side of the Standard. Each presents a series of scenes displayed in three registers, upper, middle and bottom. The two mosaics have been dubbed "War" and "Peace" for their subject matter, respectively a representation of a military campaign and scenes from a banquet.
