Shedu

Alad - a protective deity sculpted by the Assyrians. These bas-reliefs were enormous. We met an Iranian gentleman who was rekindling his youth seeing these again as he did in his youth at home. He was somewhat emotional sensing they were like long lost family members. Quite touching actually.
