Art on Steroids

I DO so love Assyrian art.
Look, it snarls!

And even Arnold Schwarzenegger would not disdain muscles like these:

These dudes are supposed to be guardian spirits, holding magic cones and buckets.
What does a magic cone do, I ask you?
I do not know.
But they are very impressively buff...

And of course the man-bulls that guard gates are Really Keen.
Check out their beards, all those curls!

One of my favoritest things about Assyrian art is how the buff, manly men (and monsters) all wear elaborate coiffeurs and jewelry.
Great stuff!
