Ghosts And Spirits Index





Benevolent and protective spirits of ancient Chaldea, the lamas supervised the welfare of mortals and were usually depicted as female, their likenesses carved beside doors to sacred chambers to repel evil. In later myths, they took different shapes and were named, such as lion headed Nigal and bull torsoed Kirub. Most often, however, the lama was shown as a winged hybrid creature, and may have been linked to the goddess spirit who presided over the home and the heart, Lamaria.
