Yes, They Were Chicken Wire Lions!

Last summer we were in the UK for a vacation.

We went to the Tower of London to see all the history.  While we were there, I noticed something on top one of the back walls.

Chicken Wire Lions!!!

An artist, who’s name I unfortunately do not know, had crafted life size and realistic looking lions from chicken wire.lion s 1


Knowing the British people, they probably have a more interesting name for it than chicken wire, but that is what I call it.


They were placed without fanfare, and allowed to be discovered on your own.
