Belvedere Gardens (series)


I unearthed a 2008 archive folder of the Belvedere Palace which I also featured for a short time that year. I think I wasn't able to show everything that needs to be shown back then. This is the gate that leads to the back of the palace. Two lions guarding a plaque and crown just over the top of the black rails designed intricately. A closer look at the lion will show that it is smiling rather than growling. :D

  4. Ohh, I love the design of the gate. So intricate, strong and beautiful. Aliw ng lion, naka-smile nga. Maybe he's thinking "Heh, you can't pass this gate!"
