This full-size replica depicts the Assyrian King Tiglath Pileser III. In the Bible, he is also called 'Pul' and he causes great destruction to the kingdom of Israel just before the time of Isaiah the prophet (See 2 Kings 15-16). Soon after this time, Isaiah would prophecy of a much brighter future: 'The people walking in darkness have seen a great light. On those walking in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.' (Isaiah 9:2).
