Couldn't resist another lion -- this one is so beautiful and regal. Also love the quote, since the Holy Idea of the Eight is Holy Truth. “The truth is like a lion. You don’t have to defend it. Let it loose. It will defend itself.
Makes me think of THE LION of Judah! Then one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals" Rev.
I love the strong emotions in this picture. Typically the lioness is the one in charge, the one who hunts and takes care of the babies but here she surrenders, gives up her power momentarily to engage to the lion's sweet play.
