My husband likes lions and here are some from around town...
Above and below from the Sakip Sabanci Museum in Emirgan,
Window at the Haydarpasa train station,
Downspout in Yenikoy,
Fountain outside of Ciragan Palace, Ortakoy,
In Gulhane Park,
And in Sultan Ahmet square.
For fans of The Chronicles of Narnia, you may remember that the lion in "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", is named "Aslan", which is the Turkish word for lion.
