Assyrian bronze statuette demon Pazuzu, first millennium BC, Louvre Museum, Paris. The inscription of the statue reads: I am Pauzuzu, son of Hanpa. The king of the evil spirits of the wind that rises abruptly from the mountains.

In Assyrian and Babylonian mythology, Pazuzu (sometimes Fazuzu or Pazuza) was the king of the demons of the wind, and son of the god Hanbi. He also represented the southwestern wind, the bearer of storms and drought. Pazuzu is often depicted as a combination of diverse animal and human parts. He has the body of a man, the head of a lion or dog, eagle-like taloned feet, two pairs of wings, a scorpion's tail, and a serpentine penis. He is often depicted with his right hand pointing upward and left hand pointing down.
