Detail of sculpture of Lion, 1600, by Flaminio Vacca or Vacchi (1538-1605), Florence, Italy, pictured on 9 June 2007 lit by the late afternoon sun. The lion was made to match a Roman sculpture which originally stood by the staircase at the Villa Medici. When the Villa was sold by the Grand Duke of Tuscany the lions were moved to the Piazza della Signoria, Florence, where they flank the steps to the Loggia dei Lanzi. Picture by Manuel Cohen
