Pazuzu was the chief demon of the ancient Mesopotamian cosmology. He was depicted with a gnarled dog-like face, human body, dragon fly wings, and talon feet. Pazuzu was manifested in the southwest wind, known for bringing drought and famine during the dry season, and locusts during rainy season. Amulets of Pazuzu were thought to deter other lesser demons, therefore protecting the wearer from harm.

Formerly in an Israeli private collection.
