Kings and Queen of Art

They are very popular among works of public sculpture. They tend to symbolize Strength and Courage. Patience and Fortitude.

King of the Jungle. They don’t actually live in the jungle. They prowl and hunt in the grasslands.

King of Beasts. Really? King? I suppose it’s clever that he gets the credit while the females do the hunting.

So here we go — four examples captured on my travels.

The Prowler — found in Kentucky

The Caregiver — St. Louis, MO

The Watchful — London, England
