Abstract:This dissertation considers royal agency in the production of imperial art and architecture in the time of Rusa II, an exceptionally industrious and innovative Urartian king of the mid-7th century B.C. For the purposes of this study, I define royal agency as the deliberate, conscious, and effective action of a strong central authority crystallized in the persona of the Urartian king. Archaeological evidence from the Urartian Empire of the 7th century B.C. has provided an extensive dataset to examine the level of the involvement of the central authority in the making of an imperial art and architecture. It indicates that the agency of the imperial center was exceptionally strong during the reign of Rusa II. The project incorporated recently excavated material from the sites of Ayanis and Bastam, which allowed for a reconsideration of the already existing data from the sites of Toprakkale, Karmir-Blur, and Kef Kalesi, all sites created at Rusa's command. In order to test royal agency in this production, I conducted a thorough investigation of Urartian imperial arts and architecture. In this pursuit, the first step was the identification of continuity, change, and innovation. The diagnostic attributes in style and iconography in the imperial arts of Rusa II, and the innovative developments in material and artifact types that emerged during his reign were defined. The next step was to investigate the extent of uniformity across different material types. The consistent presence of the same cluster of diagnostic attributes in artefacts and features manufactured in different media indicated that these changes and innovations must have been prompted by the central authority and were independent of any one group of artisans working in a single medium. The third step was an examination of the level of spatial uniformity in arts and architecture. A significant uniformity across space was attested both in imperial arts and architecture, which strongly suggested the involvement of the central authority in their production. These analyses show, the agency of the imperial centre surpassed all other possible agencies in the production process during the reign of Rusa II.
