Guardians of the Art


This photo was taken inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. I was alone in the gallery and noticed how the crowd at the other side was flanked by these two mystical human-headed winged lions called the Lamassu! The Lamassu is an Assyrian protective deity often placed at the entrance of palaces and cities.
