The Lion and the Lamb

The Lion and The Lamb

The Lion and The Lamb

This past summer the The Waterloo Regional Police Service officially unveiled its new north division station. At the front entrance you are greeted by a bronze statue of the lion and the lamb designed by Ernest Daetwyler, which borrows the two animals from the police insignia. The lamb represents youth getting it’s first shaky legs of independence, while the lion represents the community and the establishment, watchful and protective of youth.

For me, what I first thought of when I first saw this beautiful installation was the Biblical representation of the Lion and the Lamb.
