Assyrion Lion is a powerfully drawn image referencing the historic changes happening in the Middle East and the loss of ancient, cultural icons. With dramatic effect, this piece uses the archetypal Babylonian image of a female lion (here severely wounded) and a flame engulfed, falling ziggurat (the tower of Babel?) to make the point.
