lion door0041

This is the main door to the Old Town hall, built in 1364. The two lower lions are typical representations of door knockers of the time found on the doors many large buildings. The one on the upper left shows one with roaring/laughing mouth and eyes looking sideways at something it's spotted. The fourth one on the upper right has just swallowed a man, seen looking out of its mouth!
