“Aslan! Dear Aslan!” said Lucy, “What is wrong? Can’t you tell us!”
Whenever I visit Trafalgar Square and see the four huge lions that were made from recycled French canons, I always think of Lewis’ Aslan: “He’s wild, you know. Not like a tame lion.”
“Are you ill, dear Aslan?” asked Susan.
“No,” said Aslan, “I am sad and lonely. Lay your hands on my mane so that I can feel you are there and let us walk like that.” And so the girls did what they would never have dared to do without his permission, but what they had longed to do ever since they first saw himâ€”buried their cold hands in the beautiful sea of fur and stroked it and so doing, walked with him.”
â€”From The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis.
Really neat post. I was just watching the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe on ABC Family last night. That is such a beautiful scene.
These lions also remind me of Winston Churchill. I know that it is King Richard I that is referred to as lionhearted, but I always think Churchill as Winston the Lionhearted.
“I may not be the lion,” Churchill proclaimed, “but it was left to me to give the lionâ€™s roar.”
Is that PW’s B/W?
Thanks Jen. I did use the photoshop actions take from the Pioneer Woman’s site.
WOW!!! I was struck with awe upon seeing this. Wonderful.
