Golden winged leopard statue

No votes yet

It's not anthropomorphic, but click here for a photo of the giant golden "Monument to the Defenders of the Fatherland" statue in Astana, Kazakhstan: a medieval archer standing on the back of a winged leopard, symbolically soaring over the steppes raining arrows down upon the enemies of the fatherland:
Kazakhstan was recently mentioned here in August under "Furries aren't the only ones who risk public scorn..." (I found this while web-searching without luck for a picture of the five-headed eagle of Turkmenistan. Can anyone help with that?)
