Snap: Animal Statues

I am today using Helena's Snap to show some of the animal statues that I found for Alternative B in the Winter Photography Scavenger Hunt.
This little chap was in the window of a butcher's shop leaving no doubt as to where your bacon comes from.


This horse is part of a brass statue in the centre of Queen Square, Bristol and depicts William the Third on horseback.

                              

These two little chaps are Bill and Bob depicted playing in a pool are to be found in Millennium Square, Bristol.


Then lastly this lion is one of a pair guarding the rose garden at Tyntesfield House (see yesterday's post for more details on this house). The lion being the Gibbs of Tyntesfield's family emblem .

  3. We found several lion sculptures on our walk yesterday. None of them had the playful expression of "your" lion!

  4. A good Snap collection today. Mr Pig is rather a rude boy, but Bill & Bob make up for it in their cuteness (lol).

  5. Bill and Bob look like they have been stroked more than once or twice!
