This lion is one of a number that guard the entrances to a large mansion on Central Ave. in Briarcliff Manor. Inscribed on the columns on either side of the gate is the word “Hohensichtlich”. “Hohen” means high in German, and “Sichtlich” means visibly. Put them together and what do you get: I haven’t a clue.
