Victory Stele of Naram-Sin
As I type this, I'm waiting for an "AirShield" (CVS version of AirBourne) to dissolve in a glass of water. I have to be honest, it looks really disgusting. I am not looking forward to drinking it.
That's not the point. This is the Victory Stele of Naram-Sin. I'm showing this to you because it's something new and innovative in art, at least at the time it was created back in the 2200s BCE.
