I was wondering if Assyrians and relative people on far past had beard wigs, artificial beard? Or did they really use that much time on beauty and hair beauty parlor? Or are sculptures just overly detailed and decorated by hair and beard part?
Mediterranean Cultures oiled and styled their beards with curling irons to create ridges or ringlets or dangly spirals.
The Assyrians did not shave. They had beards. Ancient Egyptian reliefs, such as those at Abu Simbel, showing captured Assyrians depict them with beards.
