The Archaic Greek Lion of Kea, thought to date to around the 6th century BC, sculptor unknown. Ioulida, island of Kea.
Though much ambiguity still surrounds this stone carved smiling lion, it is thought relate to the mythology of Kea, which was once known as “The Water Island”
The island was considered to be inhabited by water Nymphs. Due to its exceptional beauty, the Gods were jealous of the island and sent a lion down to ravage it of its beauty. The lion drove all the Nymphs out of the island and the island dried out.
The inhabitants of Kea then asked Apollo’s son, Aristaeus for help and he built a temple to the mightiest of all Gods, Zeus. This act pleased Zeus and he brought rain to the island and the nymphs back to it, as well. (x)

Guarded By The Fell.
The small river village, protected by the Fells of Howgill since days of old…
This was shot from the motte of Castlehaw, the site of an ancient Norman motte-and-bailey castle, dating from around the 10thC. These days, it’s just a large hump protruding 30ft or so and surrounded by a ditch, but it does offer excellent views of the village of Sedbergh below as well as the little farmhouse shaded underneath the protective mound of Winder Fell. =)
And yes, the greens really were that green.
Left to right: Iggy, James, Elton. Richards, Atlanta, 1973.
James Williamson: ‘Yeah, so Elton John is in town for whatever reason, and I think he was kind of a fan of the Stooges or else he wanted to get some action with somebody or whatever. Anyway, he showed up in a gorilla suit and came onstage while we were playing. Everybody’s looking at this guy like, “Who the fuck is this?” and he was pretty close to getting in some real trouble onstage with us. You know, like getting hit with a guitar or something. Anyway, I think he sensed that and took his head off and showed us that he was Elton.’
“For a couple of seconds, as Elton emerged from the wings in his gorilla suit, Iggy thought he was hallucinating, or else a real gorilla was raiding the stage. The Creem photograph documenting the event is hilarious, showing James Williamson transfixing the uppity ape with a malevolent glare that signals, he says, his intent to ‘take him out. He lucked out, because he was smart enough to take his head off to let people know who he was, just in time.’”
