The Lion of Colmar

The posts have been a little thin the last few days: I have been fighting jerkbots and assware on the desktop computer.

Lion de Belfort

Somehow I missed the news that Colmar (Haut-Rhin, France) celebrated the centennial of the passing of favorite son Auguste Bartholdi, the sculptor of minor works like the Lion de Belfort and this one. (For reference, Bartholdi conceptualized the statue as a means of unifying France following defeat in 1870--and after his home was taken over by the Germans).
