Keeper of the Gate

Outside the Minneapolis Institute of Art, there sits two lion statues. They stand tall and imposing, looking down on all who pass under them. Try to catch them watching you if you can, but these guards are masters of their post. They will not be fooled by a sudden look over a shoulder or a sneaky camera. They sit, still as the stones they were unleashed from, and wait. What they wait for, one can only guess.
