Apkallu

6mar15-Apkallu

Apkallu means ‘sage’ in Akkadian and is a guardian spirit. These images were often shown near doorways and corners of rooms as that is where evil spirits were thought to lurk. From a stele in Nimrud.

Back to bed with medicine from urgent care. I could barely hold the pen but that’s done.
