The "lion and the lamb shall lay down together" is a quote derived from an ancient prophecy that refers to a utopian age on earth - a Golden Age known as 'The Millennium'. Although many believe the phrase,"lion and the lamb shall lay down together," comes from the bible, it does not. Artists have been painting these two contrasting creatures (the lion and the lamb) for centuries. There are many interpretations of this intriguing theme. Perhaps the most popular is the utopian concept known as, "Paradise Restored," -an age on earth where there will be no death, sorrow, pain or sickness. Feel free to choose your own interpretation!
