A Lamassu is celestial being from Mesopotamian mythology, similar to the Sphinx. It is usually portrayed as a male in art, but originally the name is derived from a female being.
They are protective and evil repelling deities, frightening away the forces of chaos.

The wings were a pain to do, cause I drew the feathers in the wrong direction at first. I should have looked for references BEFORE I started painting, not after, hehe.

Actually she is more like a sphinx, cause Lamassus usually have 5 legs among other things, hehe. But I just wanted to call it Lamassu.

Oh, and I'd like to dedicate this to :iconrhynn:, cause she paints the most beautiful and cool sphinxes I've ever seen!

Fantabuloso trabalho.
Você é muito habilidosa e talentosa.
Esta pintura está de se lhe tirar o chapéu. Toda ela. Pouco importa se é uma Lamassu ou uma Esfinge. De qualquer das formas é uma bela obra de arte.
Não sei se você sabe da existencia deste blog "[link]", que está relacionado com o Deviantart. Seria muito bom ver os seus trabalhos de Alphabestiários. Vou ficar como Watch, a ver se você alinha.
