Lion Monument - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

Panorama of the Lion Monument in Lucerne, Switzerland. The Lion Monument is dedicated to the memory of Swiss mercenaries who, in the service of Lous XVI King of France, were killed during the French Revolution in Paris when the Tuileries were invaded on August 10, 1792, or were guillotined on September 2nd/3rd, 1792.
Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844), the classicist Danish sculptor, designed the Lion Monument in 1819 when he was in Rome. Lucas Ahorn, stone-mason of Constance (1789-1856), carved the six meters high and ten meters long sculpture out of the sandstone rock in 1820/1821.
