The massive bronze lion (11 feet long, nose to tail) poses no threat since it is the creation of private citizens. The majestic, life-size bronze sculpture is large than life, 105 percent size is based on the dimensions of the largest male lion ever known; and an additional 5 percent was added for God, according to the Christian sculptor and evangelist, Max Greinerart, of Kerrville Texas. The estimated total project cost, including air delivery is about $100,000. Leadership Inc. will receive donations from individuals and organizations to make this gift possible. Max and Sherry Greiner, owners of Max Greiner Jr. Designs, have made a $12,000 gift toward this goal.
For thousands of years, the lion has been a symbol of the Jewish nation, King David and the Messiah. It is even referenced in the first and last books of the Bible, Genesis 49:9-10 and Revelation 5:5. The friendship between the USA and the Jewish state began when Israel was formed as a free, independent nation on May 14, 1948, following the end of World War II. The modern nation was reestablished in its ancestral home, according to archaeologists, historians and biblical scholars.
Literally thousands of Hebrew artifacts have been unearthed in the Holy Land, proving their prior existence in the land for thousands of years. According to scholars, Hebrew slaves built Egypt's pyramids until Moses led them into the wildness and to their "Promised Land." More here
