»It would be truly wonderful if the smashed fragments from the stone images could somehow be gathered together, brought to the National Museums and reassembled at a later date. In the case of this collection, it would, however, be a tremendous task, since the sculptures have been shattered into countless, often minute fragments.«
MAX VON OPPENHEIM AFTER THE DESTRUCTION OF HIS TELL HALAF MUSEUM, 1944
