    Babylon Lion


    Lion on the Babylon Wall, Museuminsel in Berlin

    The Lion is the symbol of Babylon, and represents Ishtar, the goddess of fertility, love and war. Meant not only to symbolise Babylon, but to instill fear in enemies, it seems fitting that a single stone lion, albeit poorly preserved, is the only true remainder of Babylon that stands in Iraq today.

    The Ishtar Gate or Lions Gate of Ancient Babylon, one of the best preserved ancient artifact in the world.
