Is it just me or do Yul Brynner and the stone lion resemble each other?

There is indeed an amazing resemblance. LOL.

I saw the statue and thought it looked familiar, then I saw the photo of Yul Brynner and thought "is that a statue of him?", I looked again at the statue and thought it looked like him. That was before I read your question. So, yes, I think, they look a bit similar.

Ann said...

Not just you, I can see a remarkable resemblance.

Icy BC said...

We were just near there this past weekend. Unfortunately we had quite a bit of rain while there, but it's still my favorite city.

Auntie E said...

looks like a fun place.

I've never noticed the resemblance, but now that you mentioned it. Ten Commandments used to be my favorite movie so you would think I saw that. :)

Good catch, Joanne! Definitely a resemblance there!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

jakill, right?

Benjamin, I did the same when I saw the statue. I knew it was familiar but didn't realize the resemblance until I uploaded the photo

Ann, I know, thanks for coming by

Icy, I love him too, even as a lion statue :D

Catherine, I hope the rain did not hinder your plans. Did you get to see the gardens?

Auntie, It really is, thanks for visiting

Karen, I watch the Ten Commandments every year because of Yul Brynner :)

Mhar, Thanks so much

Holly, thanks for commenting, very appreciated.

Interesting. And you are growing younger with the imagination going wild.

That resemblance is uncanny, isn't it! Right down to the head dress!

Margie: Yul Brynner always made my heart flutter.

That's from the movie Moses! I used to watch that movie all the time! I made it an excuse for not needing to go to church anymore! (hehehehe...ssshhhh....)

Ha! That is pretty funny! They do look great. Although Yul is yummier. Always did like him.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Vintage, it does doesn't it?

rainfield, LOL it's more like senility setting in :D

Karen, I know it's kinda creepy in some ways :D

Margie, mine too even with four legs :D

C, so did I. Every Easter I'd watch the movie on TV

B.Held, ah, thanks so much, I'll go check it out now. Love your new blog.

Shark, He certainly is and I always liked him as well.

The Fitness Diva said...

Wow, he most certainly does! What a likeness!

RNSANE said...

Well, I do think Yul might have posed for that statue! Boy, wasn't he a hunk...to be he suffered such an early demise!
