Photo of the Day: Buddha Riding a Lion

At least, I think this is a Buddha riding a lion, mainly because when I Googled “Buddha riding a lion” I ended up here, which explains that “the mystical lion…symbolizes the guardian of Buddhist doctrines.”

In any event, a very nice hand-carved piece, part of the “things I found in my mother-in-law’s house” series.
