Lion sculpture
One of a pair of lions guarding the entrance to TQ7258 : Preston Hall hospital. The male (pictured) is killing a snake, the female, on the opposite side of the drive, plays with her cubs.
Or so I thought, but according to the listing details for these sculptures LinkExternal link "Statues on plinths. Circa 1850 by John Thomas for Edward Betts. Stone. Rectangular plinths carrying statues of lion and lioness grappling with python and 2 dogs respectively. Plinths with strap-work and floral decoration."
