40-ft Lions Running Loose in the UK!

Attention grabber!
A seaside town called Skegness in the UK (I didn't know anything about it until I wikipedia'd it - it's actually an old resort town where the first Butlin's was opened, and yes, I wiki'd that too) is hosting three 40-ft lions as part of an exhibition called Lionheart.

The lions (of course representing the three lions in the Royal Arms) were crocheted by artist Shauna Richardson and will be on display this summer.
I think she did a magnificent job with the details—I love the lines in the crochet mimicking the musculature of the animals. It's pretty amazing.
