Lion on the beach

While we're on the subject of Antique Things Spied in Shop Windows (that Jane Covets but Can Not Afford,) here's another one:This fine fellow is one of a pair of bronze recumbent garden lions that I met last month at the auction house in downtown Detroit. They are expected to fetch between $5000-$7000 USD at auction - this (regrettably,) far exceeds my budgetary constraints where garden statuary is concerned. At least I got a picture - I do love lions and these are particularly handsome specimens.

Perhaps this lust for lions will have a happy ending akin to that of The Great Foo Dog Hunt of 2009 - I will have to tell that story sometime soon.
