Babylonian protective demon with a bull's body, eagle's wings, and a human head.

During the Neo-Assyrian Empire (c.883-612), large monumental bulls, often with wings and always with human heads, were placed as gateway guardians at the entrances of royal palaces like Khorsabad and Nineveh. The general idea behind them was that they warded off evil.

They combine the strength of a bull, the freedom of an eagle, and the intelligence of a human being Usually, they have five legs.
