The Man Eating Lion in Lihme (on the south east corner of the nave). The lion has the head of a person in its mouth. On the back of the lion, another person holds on to it as if he og she is fighting it. Christians thrown before the lions in ancient Rome? The lion here symbolises evil; the Devil himself! On the other corner of the nave, there is a peaceful/resting lion, symbolising, I suppose, Jesus as he is mentioned in The Bible as 'the lion of the tribe of Judah'.
