Aslan the 'Mane' Attraction


Yesterday I mentioned being in East Belfast's newly redeveloped East side and one of the 'mane' attractions is this magnificent piece of art by Maurice Harron, celebrating the life and work of CS Lewis who was born here.  More tomorrow - just enjoy this hero from 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'.



"..when he shakes his mane, then it is spring again." from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
