Is that the Lion of Knidos in the British museum?

Not unless it was during the seventies. There's a lot I don't remember about the seventies. I like the lines and lions crashing into one another. Lines and texture.

The seventies I remember. Whether I took my meds this morning, not so much.
PS. Did the lion get sent back to where the Brits took it from?

Bingo! It is in the British Museum. Don't remember anything about the lion, but now that you have piqued my interest I'll look it up.

First impression was British Museum from recollection -- visited there 3-4 times in the '80s and '90s.

Been there, I believe it is in the British Museum, London, UK, really close to the Pullman Hotel and British Library.
Interesting perspective. . .

It is indeed. My visit to the British Museum a few years ago was, unfortunately, very short and I didn't get much of a chance to learn about the exhibits. So my impressions, as in this photo, were more of the overall museum environment. A fascinating place.

But, following up on your comment, I just looked up Lion of Knidos. It is apparently being reclaimed by Turkey.

My thanks to all viewers and posters. The British Museum is a great institution. Don't miss it if you have an opportunity to go there!
