Description

A carte-de-visite historical photograph of the Lion’s Mound, a large conical artificial hill commemorating the battlefield of Waterloo fought on June 18, 1815. The mound was ordered by King William I of the Netherlands and construction was begun in 1820 and completed in 1826. A statue on a lion standing upon a stone-block pedestal surmounts the hill. Jean-Louis Van Geel (1787-1852) sculpted the model lion.
