Hi! Nice to see all the references in one place.

The Lion de Belfort is a direct reference to the “Dimanche” section of Max Ernst’ Une semaine de bonté, which contains several images with lion-headed characters, including one titled “Le Lion de Belfort” (https://theartstack.com/artist/max-ernst/collage-tire-de-une-sema)

The Lion de Belfort in the story is not the one in Belfort but the smaller replica that is in the middle of the Place Denfert-Rochereau http://paris1900.lartnouveau.com/paris14/denfert_rochereau/le_lion_de_belfort.htm

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
