30 Day MEME - Day 17 - An Art Piece (painting, drawing, sculpture, etc.)

Again I am going to cheat - but in all honesty it is only one (sort of) piece of art work! I attended college for 4 years, and for 3 of those 4 years I walked across or around this piece of art work.

It is an area of London dedicated to an Admiral of the Fleet who was fatally wounded at The Battle of Trafalgar - Yes, you guessed it, his name is Lord Horatio Nelson ... and this is the statue of him -


And here you can see a general view of Trafalger Square, in case you don't know what I am talking about -


However, the real piece of art work I wanted to share were the 4 lions that stand at the bottom of the plinth .... They are truly stunning, and the sheer size of them tends to get forgotten in the context of the whole location. They are stunning in their beauty, and as you can see in this image, their grandure is beautiful -


There are four bronze lions, set on granite plinths, and were sculpted by Sir Edwin Landseer.

Well worth sharing with you all.
