    Default where to find big stone lions at commercial buildings?

    Hi everyone

    Paiseh if this is a -_- question..
    I am looking to take photos of any pair of stone lions which are

    * big and tall at about 1.5m height or so or above

    * with the 绣球 and baby lion

    * situated at the outside of Commercial buildings

    * they should preferably not be too far apart

    Have tried some hotels like miramar and furama but they aren't big enough

    Anybody has any leads? Please kindly help.

    Thank you

    Okay i've seen one near the lavender hawker centre. Not a high end commerical building but it's still an office building. Has 2 stone lions outside the entrance. If i recall correctly it's almmost 1.5m too. It's been years since i've been there.

    1) Bank of China has a pair of white stones lion done in a modern style. Close together
    The one near Fullerton, facing a small road. u need walk around to spot it. not the side facing the SG river.

    2) The base of SAFTI MI Tri-service watchtower have a pair of stone lions. end of stairway.
    U can KIV & go when open house to take pix.

    Maybe u can set up a directory of Stone Lions (In Pair)
    Happy hunting~
    good to have a project in mind

    Rudolfinum at Prague (Czech Republic). There are two huge lions from stone.
    If you are interested to taking pictures in Europe, or mainly in Czech republic, try www.fototipy.cz

    you are shooting the lions, not the Buddha, and you will be at outside the temple, not inside.
    if anyone stops you, just smile and walk away. go to next temple.
