Galatia Takes a Rest on Rex

Lion Lying in it's Ancient Bed

One of the most famous sites on Kea is the stone sculpture of the smiling lion, attributed to the archetect of the Acropolis in Athens. This stone lion has been lying in this same spot since before 600+BC! I wonder how many visitor have sat on his stoic side? I wonder why the artist chose this isolated spot to place this lonely lion? Why a lion? Were there lions on Kea once upon a time? The answers to these and more questions are lost in the stone face of this lovely lasting lion! The Lion Lying on the hill side if asked may reply, 'Ask Me No Questions, I'll tell you no lies!'
