Ok, all you pillars of the community we call Whereopolis: Where is this one?
If you know or want to hazard a guess, drop us a line here, with the words ‘Where Have I Seen This?” in the subject line, please.
A number of readers roared in instant recognition last week, when we featured a large, sculpted lion’s head.
Not something you see every day, unless you make daily visits to the Eastern Branch of the Monmouth County Library on Broad Street (Route 35) in Shrewsbury.
Eastern branch librarian Mary Jane Kehoe identifies it as “the 15,000-pound bronze statue by noted wildlife artist Bart Walter.” Titled “Wild Imaginings,” it was installed in July, 2008, when the library completed an extensive renovation. What our photo didn’t show is that the lion is guarding a boy reading a book.
