Sculpture and the Lions of Paris #1

Are there more lions in Paris than in all of Africa? 
Everywhere you turn, LIONS!

Many elderly lions retire to Paris, in the Louvre and Cluny Museums, where all their needs are met.

Lion from Iran

Looking good for his age, many hundreds of years.
I must confess, my documentation is poor. There was so much to see and so little time.
You'll just have to go to Paris,  meet them and get to know these lions yourself!
