This is one of my favorites SAK's of my collection.
This Spartan has metal scales and in the front scale shows the Lion Monument which is in Lucerne.
In the back scale shows a beautiful pattern with flowers and it has a engravable section.
I found it in Australia.
And here is his brother in gold.
The Lion Monument in Lucerne is a giant dying lion carved out of a wall of sandstone rock above a pond at the east end of the medieval town. It was designed as a memorial for the mercenary soldiers from central Switzerland who lost their lives while serving the French king Louis XVI during the French Revolution.
When the revolutionary masses attacked the royal Tuileries castle in Paris on August 10, 1792 and on 2nd and 3rd of September 1792 the Swiss mercenary troops tried to defend the royal family and make sure the royals could escape.The Lion Monument was inaugurated on August 10, 1821.
The latin inscription HELVETIORUM FIDEI AC VIRTUTI means "To the loyalty and bravery of the Swiss".
Mark Twain called this sculpture “the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world.”
