I do not know exactly whether this lion is a "child" or a "grown-up". On the one hand, his appearance and clothes are rather childish, also he has got a touching face. On the other hand, he has got the mane of a grown-up lion, more than that his hare is grey.

Maybe you have met such people, especially among scientists and programmers. They look young even if they are 50. They do not want their clothes to be solid and respectful and this makes them look even more young.

As a decoration on his sweater there is a violet glass "eye" which is considered to be as an amulet against the evil eye in Italy (and as far as I know in Turkey).
