Yup. Chinese whispers...
I'll agree that Phil is correctPhil's correct - they are lions. If you look at the head you can see sort of curly or wavy hair - that's supposed to be the mane...
Most probably the artists interpretation of a lions mane but as they would have never seen one other than in a crude sketch it more than likely was depicted as some sort of ceremonial headdress.I'll agree that Phil is correct
I just thought that the curls were a part of a head-dress . to go along with the other ornaments that the animal seems to be wearing
It's clearer on some than others - you can see it on this example quite well:I just thought that the curls were a part of a head-dress . to go along with the other ornaments that the animal seems to be wearing
Here's one of ours - they sit either side of the fireplace and keep evil spirits from entering the house via the chimney. Since they were installed, we've had no more nonsense from the fat bearded guy in red

Sorry for the crap photo, but I got snarled at by H who is watching TV
Yeah, I'm sure multiple universes don't come into it with regard quantum computers as they work on performing calculations based on the probability of an object's state before it is measured as opposed to an ordinary computer that just works on 1s or 0s.Just by the by, Phil you piqued my interest in whether or not quantum computing requires a multiverse with the predictable result that a terrifying rabbit warren opened beneath my feet.
The net of it seems to be that quantum computing may not require a multiverse, but it's incomprehensibly arcane and I don't pretend to have climbed further than up a stalk of grass in the foothills of distant and mist-shrouded peaks
Of course this would not be evidence that parallel universes do not exist. Only that those physicists arguing that quantum computing doesn't require a multiverse to work are correct.
"Broken mind"?I was actually saying the opposite . I wouldn't consider myself a good person , because part of the equation is that I have a broken mind . so it doesn't really count . I can deal with everything bad that I've ever been through ___ and very often laugh about it
but I feel much worse when I see bad things happen to others
It was "hotter than two Hells"* in Upstate NY and Massachusetts this weekend, with heat indexes north of 100 from Friday through today... and I was staying at a fellow muso's house with no A/C. I am generally a really good sport about the heat but this tish felt like being slapped with a giant hot fish.
Very picturesque and tranquil looking park.Right in the heart of town - about a ten minute walk from where we live.
A couple more pics:
I would imagine that just about everyone in here would be psychiatrists dream come true..."Broken mind"?
I resemble that remark!
I grew up with my own alphabet soup of syndromes and defects, so while my array of maladies may be different from yours, I think I understand you better than Mr Average would, and just because your particular wiring lets bad stuff bounce off you, that neural shield doesn't make you bad.
Countryside is just a couple minutes away (by car). Our town's size is very convenient. With a population @ 100.000 it's big enough to have pretty everything to cater to one's needs but it's still small enough that you can access most of by walking (unless you can't walk much anymore that is of course....). Lots of green places and parks right in the heart of the town as well.Very picturesque and tranquil looking park.
Love the lake..
So how far do you have to travel to get to the countryside from your town Tom and what's it like round your neck of the woods..Hilly, flat, wooded etc?
If you mean how far into some green pastures or woods - from my place here it's only five to ten minutes to either hit the woods, some park in town or down to the river where you are immediately outside of town.So how far do you have to travel to get to the countryside from your town Tom
