Abstract

This research deals with the aesthetic transformations of the mythical forms in the pottery of Iraq and the extent to which the arts were influenced by them during the ancient Babylonian era, which appeared in a variety of artistic styles in terms of form and subject, due to what these carvings and shapes bear in terms of constructive systems and intellectual loads. The researcher unveiled the depiction of these shapes and carvings for the specialty and the sculptures that carried aesthetic transformations. The research problem is summarized in the transformations occurring to mythical forms by the nature of the artwork and the extent to which the arts were affected by them during the ancient Babylonian era. The research aims to identify the aesthetic transformations of mythical forms in the pottery of ancient Iraq during the ancient Babylonian era from 2004 to 1500 BC. Then the research defined the concept of aesthetic transformations, the ancient mythical thought, and the diversities of the art of ancient Iraq. Four intentional samples were chosen, which the researcher concluded after analyzing that the mythical and feminine sculptures of the ancient Babylonian era were naked. The artist tried here to confirm the symmetry of the organs, the disappearance of a glimpse of femininity on them, and the statement of the charms that characterize the female body. Some mythical scenes were also depicted on the ancient Iraqi clay tablets, in a kind of strange way, so that it came out in a realistic way and took a mythical character.
