St Luke is represented by the Winged Ox. Here’s a good article on the Biblical background for the four winged beasts representing the four gospel writers.
I was in the Bob Jones art gallery some time ago, and they have a great 18th c. Italian collection of the four gospel writers: a portrait of each with his assigned winged beast. I was surprised to find that in the captions and explanatory notes they did not know the Biblical background for the four winged beasts.
