His grave. Really quite classy, imho.


Neat. When I went to Europe I took a pic of every lion I could find and made a photo book out of it.


There’s a lot of them here, some newer ones are quite beautiful, like this one at early XX century hydroelectric plant in Silesia, Poland:

But the best ones are IMO are those older, made by someone who newer actually saw a lion, like this one in Książ Castle, Poland:

Or even better, this one in Louvre museum in Paris:


It’s hard to even tell if that was intended to be a lion or some entirely different creature :slight_smile:
