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
, cause she paints the most beautiful and cool sphinxes I've ever seen!
