A pair of brass cufflinks with an antique gold finish. <br> <br> These cufflinks are inspired by a giant Assyrian statue of a human-headed winged bull. Composite winged animals were common in Babylonian and Assyrian art, and were often placed at gateways as protection from evil spirits.

A pair of brass cufflinks featuring ancient Assyrian lammasu.

The design of these cufflinks have been inspired by ancient Assyrian sculpture.

The Assyrian lamassu, or winged bulls, were stone mythological guardians. Positioned to be viewed in relief or in the round, they were often placed at gateways of Assyrian citadels or palaces to protect them from demonic forces. King Ashurbanipal of the Assyrian empire kept winged bull figures in the entrance to the throne room of his palace. A lamassau can be seen housed in the collection of the British Museum.

A handsome gift celebrating ancient design.
