Such a well carved lion.A nice bit of stonework here.
Just a bit confused with the significance of the ''carcass'' above it ??

Beautifully carved monument and very well presented. Great to have something to photograph which doesn't move too!

France and the Swiss Confederation had had a close relationship for nearly three centuries. Throughout this time the Swiss cantons provided mercenaries to serve the French king.
Many of the king's Swiss Guard were massacred at the Tuileries Palace in August 1792 as they tried to prevent the mob from arresting the royal family. The massacre provoked horror and dismay in Switzerland; the guards were subsequently honoured with a statue in Lucerne.
The Lion Monument in Lucerne, erected 1820/1 in honour of the Swiss Guard massacred at the Tuileries.

A bit of Swiss history for all interested people.
Lovely image, you coped well with the fact that the lion lies in a cavity.
