My dog looks like a Babylonian Demon

I didn't have the nerve to post this in the Ancient Civilizations forum

In the picture you can see an ancient Babylonian demon called Pazuzu. The expression on his face is exactly the same as the one my dog displays when he is playing.

It made me think - does anyone else suspect that their pet could be an incarnation of an ancient entity? Yes, I am just kidding, but pictures would be appreciated

This is a picture of a Kassite terracotta lioness from about 1500 bc. This is exactly the expression I have to put up with when I am too busy to play with the little mutt.

Ha, your dog is adorable. Has an inquisative look.

If you are thinking he looks like a demon, then, you can't yell at him if he makes a mistake on your carpet!

Don't you wonder what he thinks you look like?

Or artists back then had similar pets, and modeled their artwork off them? It isn't your dog looks like a demon, it's the demon looks like your dog's ancestor!

Bianca Rose I know exactly what my dog thinks I look like - the source of all food and entertainment

Other than that, I hate to think

One of the things I love about ancient art is the way animals were such an inspiration. I love to imagine the artists looking about them and paying such close attention to the wildlife and wanting to 'capture' it just so.
