Monument
The Lion Monument, aka the Lion of Lucerne, is a rock relief commemorating Swiss Guards massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution. The giant sculpture is 6 m high and 10 m long. The upright wall of rock is the remains of a quarry exploited over centuries in the building of Lucerne. The statue sees a regal lion dying from a spear wound which is marked by a shield bearing the emblem of the French monarchy. Mark Twain once described the monument as “the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world.” Standing there, it is impossible not to feel a sense of grief and wonder. It's a truly moving experience.
