I like this lion very much, Zeb, and might even be tempted to pet it...like Aslan from Narnia!

I don't find that tete offensive Zeb.
I ought to have this outside my house grin
He's very beautiful, very regal.

Very impressive
Such a polished nose……I think others have felt as Ginnie smile He looks an amiable character and yet strained: furrowed brow and boss eyes. A striking picture Zeb

Very impressive head. He does look a little sad though, but a fine portrait.
I love to see all this fancy door furniture when we visit our French family in the Lyon area. This is a splendid lion.
A rather fine brass head, I wonder who has to polish it smile

I'm sure I've seen something like this elsewhere but I can't recall where. Looks like a fair number of hands have passed over its nose.

A melancholy lion - fine shot.
It's rather a friendly looking lion! smile
A very expressive face. Great door ornament isn't it
