Coucher du Lion: Uncovering a Mystery (not really)

This is the photograph which was altered to create the Coucher du Lion: Une autre expérience? post. This particular statue was surrounded by dozens of other carven images – a passionate couple (to be posted in an altered form), a pair (plus one) of holding hands, and in the distance, Caesar, etc.

(indecipherable from image) 1731 – Milan 1806 / Lion. By doing a Google Search (as well as “blowing up” the plate in question) I was able to understand some of what was written on the plate, however, I have no idea what is written towards the bottom.”]100_6147-AW[-]

The "blown up" information plate. It's amazing what you can discover in an image taken with a 12MP digital camera.

About Zechariah Barrett

Greetings! Jambo! Hola ! 你好 ! Bonjour ! Hallo ! Привет ! Buongiorno ! こんにちは ! Thanks for checking out my profile. I'm Zechariah, an author, photographer, graphics designer, language learner, techie... I'll stop there for now. One more thing. I'm also a Christian. Depending on your life experience, that may mean different things to you. I want to assure you, however, that I don't subscribe to all the prevailing views. I don't subscribe to hate. I don't engage in party politics. I both care about a robust economy as well as the environment and social issues. I want to truly live my life by the Spirit of Christ, and that entails loving others and caring for this world. That's how I'm different. I'm not here to cast judgmental glances or make you feel like trash. My heart is to help others, and I hope that shows in all that I do. I also want to have a discussion. Not a debate, not an argument. I want to engage with my readers and viewers regardless of our differences, and then start a conversation. Let's make this world a better place. Together.
