Sad Lion

This carving is on an otherwise normal tenement building in Hunter street. All the items in it indicate something to do with grain harvesting but I think the round things at the side of the shield are hops which indicate brewing. There is a large brewery just around the corner so that is probably right.

I always feel sorry for the lion which looks so miserable but then if I had a big ring stuck in my mouth so would I.
