Art Institute Holiday...

Images taken of the front of the Art Institute recently.

The two bronze lions that flank main entrance were made for the opening at its current location in 1893. The lions are not identical, and thus are named for their poses:

The south lion "stands in an attitude of defiance,"...

...while the north lion is "on the prowl."

Fun with Photoshop

Info on lions from here.
