English: Shedu refers to an Assyrian deity also called an alad, in Hebrew šed (שד) or in Akkadian, šêdu. In art they were depicted as winged bulls and lions (also known as Lammasu); both forms having the heads of human males. Considered to be beneficient and protective spirits they could be found in statue form outside the entrances to palaces and cities. There are still surviving figures of šêdu in bas-relief and some statues in museums.
