Two very famous lions

This lion and his twin next to him (not shown) are two very controversial sculptures in Santiago and in Chile. Most people think (and some want us to think so) that they were robbed to Perú during the War of the Pacific (1879 to 1884). Actually, this magnificent bronze sculptures are part of the work of a Chilean sculptor, José Carocca Laflor.
