Sleeping On The Job...



This is one of the lions "guarding" the main entrance to the Old State Capitol.

A wonderful statue! Reminds me of the lions at the Chicago Art Institute, but this guy looks like he's in a good place--dreamland. Needs a bit of restoration or cleaning? His nose looks a little the worse for wear.

I guess I have walked by this guy a dozen times without taking notice that he is letting the guard slip.

Your doing a great job of showing off Baton Rouge

Hmm, Kate, I don't know if the lions have ever had a cleaning or been restored. Poor dears! I know they get "loved up" by the schoolchildren who tour the building.
