I saved my Soul
The lion and the lamb are a symbolic pair, since olden times representing the opposite qualities and phenomenaâ€”war and peace, ferocity and gentleness, hardness and softness... But the artist introduces into the well-known images a new themeâ€”that of mercy and atonement. The lion releases his victim and thus saves his soul. This idea is embodied in a monumental image of a stone lion, raising his head and turning his eyes upward toward the heavens. We also know that the lion and the lamb lying down together symbolize future Golden Age and Paradise Regained.
