The Lost Lamassu, 2016

A Lamassu is an ancient Assyrian sculpture of a bull or lion with wings and the head of a human being. In former times, Lamassu's stood in front of palaces to protect the city. In February 2015, Daesh (IS/ ISIS/ ISIL) published a video on YouTube in which they destoyed the face of an original Lamassu sculpture with a drill hammer. This sculpture happened to be one of the only Lamassu, that was still standing in its original location. What happened to all the other Lamassu?
