Lamassu.

Lamassu. 

Wish you a beautiful week ahead.
*************************************************************
In art, lamassus were depicted as hybrids, either winged bulls or lions with the head of a human male. The motif of a winged animal with a human head is common to the Near East, first recorded in Ebla around 3000 BCE.
Typically placed lamassu is at the openings of cities and palaces, so that everyone who entered would see it. From the front it appears to be standing and from the side walking. This was intentionally done to make it seem powerful.

Dando un salto en el tiempo, si Celeste hubiera pertenecido a la cultura asiria, podría haber sido la autora de esta escultura, ya que en esa época no hubiera podido dedicarse a la fotografía.
