Here is a picture of this year’s t-shirt. The picture (prepared by Anat Perko) we are using for the t-shirt is based on a plaque, possibly dropped by an Assyrian soldier during Sennacherib’s campaign to the Shephelah, was found near the wadi at the foot of the tell. it was found by a member of one of the Moshavim in the region, and published by M. Cogan in Israel Exploration Journal. the figure depicted is Lamashtu – a Mesopotamian demon known to be responsible for disease – particularly amongst pregnant women or children breastfeeding. These amulets were probably worn as protection against the demon and against disease.
