Winged Bull Tie

Silk necktie featuring a print inspired by ancient Assyrian lamassu. The Assyrian lamassu, or winged bulls, were stone mythological guardians. 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 of the throne room of his palace. The winged bull motif can be found in the featured exhibition Assyria: Palace Art of Ancient Iraq at the Getty Villa
