Ok, yep, that's me. I asked someone passing to take my picture for reference to height of the figures.

Yep, Me again!

The following pictures are of King Sargon II.
You'll notice that they are all blurry (except for the last one)! No matter what I did.

I literally said out loud... "Oh come on, Sargon, please let me take your picture."
I guess you always have to ask permission from the king!
