Lion of Al-lāt
The Lion of Al-lāt is an ancient statue which adorned the temple of pre-Islamic goddess al-Lāt in Palmyra, Syria. On 27 June 2015, it was severely damaged by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant after they captured Palmyra. The statue was eventually removed to the National Museum of Damascus, underwent reconstruction works, and now stands again.Photograph: Mappo
