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

A pendant necklace featuring an ancient Assyrian lammasu.

The design of this pewter pendant has 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 charming gift inspired by ancient design.
