: Damn! I thought they'd surely use real cellulite, stripped from the inner thighs of old women from conquered tribes, seeing as ancient Assyrians were barbarians who had no respect for human life.
+++ Indeed, you are right here ...
They first tried it out but then ran into problems of conservation of the dead body tissues.
+++ This was followed by a short intermittant period in which those tissues were regularly exchanged/replaced with new, fresh ones in 1 week intervals (so called Assyrian "Scalpture period") stemming from the booty from military raids especially to this end.
+++ When, however, the remaining population kept fleeing or revolting for some unimaginable reasons, the live tissue supply trickled down and then came to a total halt.
+++ Therefore they changed to the habit of applying this new dermatological feature to living women (functioning as sort of living sculptures) while the little statues henceforth served only as a reminder or a tourist article.
