My lions

These are my lions. My grandfather gave them to me when he moved. They were among the only things I wanted from his house because of the big sentimental value. I spent many happy hours playing on them when I was a child. They looked quite nice with their little snow caps on and I snapped their picture. It seemed like a long time since I put anything new up in the Architectural Elements category. The lions are Persian and quite, quite old.

Do they have names?

In fact, they do: Patience and Fortitude, like their younger cousins at the New York Public Library.

They are great!!! I love them, especially with the ribbon and the cap.

Cool cats.

(Yes, that was a bad attempt at a pun.)

Love them; how wonderful you have something so personal to remember your grandfather and your childhood by. I'm mucho envious. :-)

Wow, those are so cool! I bet when you invite people over, you tell them it's the house with the lions, right? LOL You probably can't miss them... :)
