|Lion of Lucerne - Watercolor Batik on Rice Paper / 16 X 20|
We got busy doing other things the last few days, but I found another photo of a batik never posted on the blog.
It is a shortened version of a sculpture carved into a Swiss cliff commemorating the loyalty and bravery of the Swiss Guards. The lion lays mortally wounded. I cropped out the spear that pierces his side because it broke my heart.
Mark Twain referred to the monument as "the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world." (Mark Twain, A Tramp Abroad, 1880)
