Lion Monument by Bertel Thorvaldsen

Also known as the Lion of Lucerne, this sculpture in Lucerne, Switzerland, commemorates the Swiss Guards who were massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution. Mark Twain praised the sculpture of a mortally-wounded lion as “the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world” and Mark Twain knew what he was talking about, guys.
