Cherubim

Unknown artist   -  
Lamassus found in the excavation of Nimrud

An Arab guard stands between two Lamassu – Guardians of the Gate – during Layard’s excavation of Nimrud. The lamassu’s body is a lion, its hooves are a bull, its head a man with a stylized beard and wings. Its horned cap attests to its divinity, and the belt signifies power. It has five legs so that it appears to be standing firmly when viewed from the front but striding forward when seen from the side.
