I've added a version of my remarks about the artworks of Jean Paul Lemieux to the Stamps and Languages thread.

The Lion of Belfort, in Belfort, France, is an 1880 monumental sculpture made entirely of red sandstone by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi (1834-1904), the sculptor of the Statue of Liberty.

The lion symbolizes the heroic French resistance during the Siege of Belfort, a 103-day Prussian assault during 1870 - 1871. The city was successfully defended against 40,000 Prussians by merely 17,000 men (of whom only 3,500 were from the military) led by Colonel Denfert-Rochereau, with the fortress holding out until the Armistice of Versailles obligated French forces to abandon it.

The Lion of Belfort, stamp on Epreuve de Luxe, designed and engraved by Eugène Lacaque and issued by Dahomey (Benin) on August 20, 1974 to commemorate Bartholdi 140th birth anniversary:

Nice engraved stamp/deluxe proof by Lacaque, and impressive sculpture by Bartholdi. I thought that red sandstone would weather rather fast, but the sculpture still looks to be in very good condition.

Thank you, Eli, for showing us these lovely engraved stamps, paired with the original paintings.
(Interesting that in "quote" mode, the relative sizes of the stamps and paintings have changed.)

For me the artistic faithfulness of the engraved Polish stamp to the original painting is excellent. I appreciate it highly.
In contrast, while the Spanish stamp is attractive, its engraved subject uses much artistic licence to deviate from the original painting — the woman's gaze, the arrangement of the coins, the appearance of the scales, and more...
In both cases, the original paintings are quite lovely.
