A lion status

This lion is put at the entrance of Mitsukoshi, a famous department store in Japan, and the status is perhaps the most famous all over Japan.

This was derived from the Lion status beside the Nelson's column at Trafalgar Square in London and was made because the president in those days loved lions very much.

By the way, if you can ride on the status, not seen by anybody, then your wishes are said to come true.
