Giant Lion in the Mountain in Lucerne, Switzerland


A great lion is carved into the side of a mountain cliff in Lucerne, Switzerland. This awe inspiring monument is today known as "The Lion of Lucerne" (or the "Lion Monument"). The carving is located in the medieval part of the city and was originally carved to honor Swiss soldiers who lost their lives during the French Revolution.
