First photo taken around 1952, with Lion’s head attached to the my father grew up in – Riccarton, Christchurch, New Zealand. The little boy in the photo is my father aged around 5 years old.
Second photo taken yesterday, Gold Coast, Australia. Lion Head firmly attached to our home here, overlooking the pool.
Not sure on the history of the Lion, he looks as if he at some point had a ring or something in his mouth and he weighs about 25kg. We have long speculated on his history and how long he’s been in the family. We likely will never know.Follow @paula_from_nz
