The Chinese lions have appeared in the blog before, most recently last summer. They also turned up here, there, and here too. The story is I found the pair chucked out by the road and rescued them. This was several years back and they’d since started to look like they’d been taking in a bit too much sun.
It was time for a little sprucing with gold paint.
Although they weren’t painted differently originally, I thought the eyes should be red.
