I Need Patience and Fortitude

And not just because I'm using an older computer. :-)

While the entire façace of the New York Public Library main building would be lovely, what I need in the short-to-medium term for a render is Patience and Fortitude, the lions who "guard" the Library. Are models of them available (legally) anywhere? Characters would be wonderful, but props will suffice...

(They're rather distinctive, and the person I'm doing the render for has an eye for architectural elements, so simply re-texturing the Millennium Big Cat probably won't work... unless there's a P&F morph for the MBC out there.)

    If this is for 2D illustrative work, I would have thought that a little retouching of Predatron's lion statues would work. If retouching is out of the question you still might be able to get away with the models which aren't that far off. The plinth isn't quite the same, but that's just rectangular blocks so pretty to easy to modify.

    I was not aware of them... thanks! I'll ask whether they're close enough.
