The Exorcist, Pazuzu Relic
replica movie prop
In the opening moments of the movie, Father Lancaster Merrin discovers this ancient miniature bust at an archaeological dig site in Northern Iraq; soon thereafter, odd things start happening to the good Father.
Although not specifically named in the original movie, this image depicts the Assyrian demon god Pazuzu, bringer of storms, locusts, drought, and famine (nice guy), but also protector of pregnant women (go figure). While Pazuzu's face is like that of a lion or dog, and his torso that of a man, he also boasts eagle-taloned feet, two sets of wings, a scorpion's tail, and of course, the serpentine penis.
