The Lion of Lucerne would be impressive anywhere, but nowhere so impressive as where he is. ~ Mark Twain
Do you know the history of this monument? Do you know why this lion looks like in pain?
But I look like ‘I don’t care’ . As do my sister.
It stands for a horrific event, sadly. I took the time to read about ‘the Lion of Lucerne’
Wikipedia helpfully translates “Helvetiorum Fidei ac Virtuti ”
to English: “To the loyalty and bravery of the Swiss.”
The inscription below the lion is a list of names. You can find a more detailed story at ancient-origins.net
Aren’t you moved yet?
How about now?
What’s great about art is not just the technical mastery of creativity but the story behind it. If it lets you feel, then it has achieved its purpose.
On the other side… I mean really, the other side of the lion…
is a pretty washroom. O.O
Sorry, I got a bit emotional so I had to end the post with something diverting. >.<
