Back to Budapest for my snap set this week with 4 of the many lion statues to be found around the city.
The two on the left are on either side of an entrance to the Parliament building - if you look closely you can see that a different clay finish was used in creating the casting model for each - the bottom one is smooth but on the top one you can see how the pieces of clay were laid on - I wonder if this was intentional or if something stopped the top one from being finished.
The back of the lion is from a statue on one of the bridges across the Danube - the front faces towards the presidential palace but I liked the flow of the tail and the behind view
The fourth is on top of a tall tower near Parliament - it is fighting the snake that is wound around its body.
Fascinating to see so many different images of the one animal.
We are half way through the year of snap sets - loving all the themes and new ideas
