Maybe it’s not in the perfection of life that things make sense, but in the chaos.

A Lamassu, was a protective deity from Mesopotamian mythology, often depicted with a bull or lion’s body, eagle’s wings, and human’s head. The lamassu was a household protective spirit of the common Babylonian people. Later during the Babylonian period it became the protector of kings. Statues were often placed at entrances and often used as gatekeepers.
