Artist's Description

One of the Saltaire lions, Saltaire, Shipley, Bradford, UK

It’s an urban myth that the lions were originally destined for Trafalgar Square but ended up in Saltaire instead.

Legend has it the lions were extremely accurately carved, right down to the very last detail. The inclusion of certain ‘appendages’ was too much for prudish Londoners of the Victorian era to tolerate, so rather than chiselling off the offending parts, the stonemasons had to carve new lions minus their “equipment” for Trafalgar, and the others came to Saltaire
