Pergamon Museum-Ishtar Gate Images
The Ishtar Gate is near the Pergamon Altar and
is also stunning and impressive. Two full rooms are needed to house it
because it includes the lane leading up to it and both lane and gate are
12-40 feet tall wall coverings of enameled brick in vivid blue and yellow.
The blue field of the walls is then detailed with repeating lions in yellow
along the lane and covered with lions and other creatures on the gate.
