photo_65_stone_animalIt’s difficult to know whether these two animals are one and the same. The top one is a fountain at the foot of the steps leading up to the castle, on Place Louis XII, just opposite the Pierced Swan, while the bottom one is in the castle grounds. The top one has a crown while the bottom one doesn’t. Any suggestions will be welcome!

Il n’est pas facile de savoir si ces deux animaux sont le même. Celui au-dessus est une fontaine au pied de l’escalier qui mène au château, sur la place Louis XII, juste en face du cygne transpercé tandis que celui en-dessous se trouve dans le parc du château. Celui au-dessus porte une couronne ce qui n’est pas le cas de celui en-dessous. Toute suggestion sera la bienvenue!

    I think the top one represents one of the king’s hangovers while the second one is a boar. What do I win ?

      Well, I don’t know. Susan thinks it’s a lion!

        Yeah, but Stuart’s explanation is better.

    I took a side on photo of the one at the chateau and from that angle it looks very like your top photo, but more worn. I think they are supposed to be lions.

      So, the lion king.
