I have seen better
Quite the king indeed!
The king of beasts
It took me a few seconds because I was searching for a whole lion's body, but his face is much better than that:)
There is not much of a body to it
I've seen some remarkable creations masquerading as "lions" in church carvings. This one at least looks as though the carver might have seen a lion or a picture of one. Then I notice his ears!
I often wonder what they are thinking with some of the carvings
A formidable decoration.
Quite the figure
Maybe I"m looking at it from a different angle but I can kind of see a dog.
Odd looking dog
Unfortunately, I cannot see that hat is a lion
The hat is the crown on the lions head, like on the royal coat of arms
What a cool statue.
I've see some quite unusual ones
There's something...amazing, I guess, about seeing art in the world. It reminds me of all that even the simplest among us can do. Especially when I think of my own attempts to carve wood...
That is something I have never tried but I'm up for it
