Lion hunting in Moscow, Russia

by Olga on March 11, 2011

I believe it’s hard to find a big city in the world without sculptural figures of lions on its streets. Throughout history the lion, king of beasts, has been a popular symbol of royalty and stateliness, power and honor, nobility and courage. Let me show you a small part of my collection of the Moscow lion statues.
