3D model description

The Lion of Belfort is a monumental statue by Auguste Bartholdi situated against the cliff underneath the castle of Belfort. It symbolises the heroic resistance of the French army besieged in Belfort during the French-Prussian War (1870-71).

The heroic siege of Belfort was personified and symbolised by the monumental statue of a Lion erected in 1880 by Auguste Bartholdi. The sculptor was a local man from Colmar, and is renowned for having designed the Statue of Liberty in New York. Bartholdi described his monument as “a colossal lion, harried, driven back and still terrible in his fury”.

No one seem to had interest in modeling the lion, so here it is, and i'm proud to be from Belfort also :)
