    There is a beautiful recumbent lion statue on a monument in the Lowell Cemetery, (surprise, surprise!) Lowell, Ma. I especially love the the lions in front of the New York Public Library in Manhattan. I even figured out a way to write them into a mystery novel!

    • Thank you so much for letting me know abouthe lion monument at the Lowell Cemetery. I really need to check it out!

      I, too, am fascinated by Patience and Fortitude at the New York Public Library, though I never have actually seen them in person.
      I’d love to see how you incorporate them in your mystery novel. There’s an old Charles Beaumont fantasy story (unfortunately I don’t remember
      the title) that used them in the most delightful way.

      I really do love lion statues and am fortunate that Worcester has more of their fair share of them.

  2. I did some research on the internet and discovered the title of the Charles Beaumont short story I mentioned in the previous comment. It’s called “The Vanishing American” and I highly recommend it!
