New York Public Library

I'll call  her Delicate
I tried many times to find out more of Delicate to no avail.
There is a small plaque to the left of her but I failed to capture it.
If anyone knows her real name or her history please share?

Beauty sits upon Pegasus

Above Beauty are these words:
Old yet ever new
Eternal Voice
and inward word
These words are from a poem by Whittier called Shadow and the Light

Meet Patience.  One of two lions protecting the Library since 1911. Fortitude is the name
of the other twin lion.

  1. Great shots!! I love the second one....
    Have a great week ahead!

  2. Great view of some art treasures!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  3. If the art is anything to go by ,then the library is certainly a place worth visiting.

  4. Great shots of a very memorable place ~ Always loved the lions ~
