Well, I went to the link, but that's way too much history for me! So, the Marzocco is the symbol of Florence of something like that...and he's a handsome lion, with his paw casually resting on the crest or coat of arms or whatever.Why do you suppose lions are so often used to reflect "guardianship"?Maybe it's because their "mane" quality is strength?OK, I apologize. I feel a little silly tonight!
With a fleur de lys. I need to go find out about this...
I like the angle! Great photo!
The building is the Palacio Vecchio, right?
Nice. Thanks for the link too. I'd never heard of the Marzocco.
