Lions

Hello, I am the King. The king of Beasts.

The number of stone lions were found in Kyiv – 108

As the most important animal, the lion is given the “lion’s share” of honors to decorate the dwellings of Kyiv citizens. After all, He is the symbol of power and majesty.

Photo above: a magnificent lion on the building of the former Makovsky Clinic (Olesya Gonchara Street, 33). The sculptor’s autograph “Fyodor Sokolov. 1907” was saved in the lower part of the sculpture.
