Original Marble Lions Nearly 100 Year Old

Updated:2011-04-22 17:27:12

The Original Marble Lions in front of the New York Public Library,are now 99 years 11 months 2 days old.And the library official say they have enough patience to make it to 100 year old.
The library invites the artist Nathan Sawaya who has constructed Statue of Liberty to maintainance these two lions since they were invented from World War Two.The library regarded the lions as symbols.At that time, Mr. Potter who originally created the lions delivered a pair of males that are taller and longer than the average African lion. And surely these two lions are African not Indian lions.They costed $13,000, roughly $300,000 in today’s dollars.It is exactly pink Tennessee marble.On their 44th birthday, in 1955, The New York Times reported that letters to “The Lion Library” were delivered as addressed.They were given a bath in 1975 that was supposed to wash away the effects of pollution.
