Lion’s Head

The Lion’s Mind is a statue along Kennon Street, a significant highway in Luzon, Philippines that leads to the populous city of Baguio. Situated in Camp 6, the Lion’s Mind measures 40 ft (12 m) high. It had been conceptualized by the Lions Club members of Baguio, through the term of Luis Lardizabal as mayor of Baguio from 1969 to 1970 and as the club’s president, to be the club’s symbol or imprint in the region. To the artistic sculpting Prior, the limestone was made by a combined band of engineers and miners, then the “actual creative carving of the façade” was rendered by Reynaldo Lopez Nanyac, an Ifugao woodcarver and artist from the Cordillera Administrative Area. The construction project started in 1968 but was interrupted. The task was continued in 1971 by another Lions Golf club president, Robert Webber, and was unveiled in 1972.
