Exclusive

Exclusive to the British Museum, an ornament based on the pair of Assyrian lamassu winged bulls that flanked one of the entrances to the throne room of King Ashurnasirpal II (883-859 BC).

The resin ornament is made in the UK, and replicates the winged bulls now housed in the British Museum.

The Assyrian lamassu, or ‘winged bull’ were stone mythological guardians often placed at gateways to citadels or palaces to protect them from demonic forces. This winged bull is depicted to be seen both from the front and side views, and therefore appears to have five legs; from the front he is standing firm, while from a side view, he is striding forwards.

A wonderful home ornament inspired by ancient history.
