Additionally, the fish represents Jesus and three fish symbolize the Trinity (p. 188). A lamb is also a symbol for Jesus (usually topped with a halo) (p. 191). Moreover, a lion has an array of meanings and could be referencing Saint Mark the Evangelist, Samson or Daniel. However, in most cases Mark is most likely the point of reference if the lion is winged. On the contrary, when the lion is in battle with a dragon, Jesus is the symbol as He fights off evil (p. 192).

Another resemblance between 'The Lion King ' and 'Macbeth ' is the characters of the story. It 's well-known that the first character which has a great role of the story in 'Macbeth ' is King Duncan, while King Mufasa also represents this role in 'The Lion King '. Obviously, we can see the similarity between both of them through their position in the society. King Duncan is the king of Scotland, while the Pride Lands is ruled by King Mufasa; likewise, they both rule the land rightfully. Certainly, they long to hand on the crown to the son, but both of them are murdered by their kinsman who wants to take this crown.
When he stated, “He must therefore be a fox to discern toils, and a lion to drive off wolves,” (46) he expresses that a prince should be able to discern whether to use force or deceit when dealing with different situations. Machiavelli also stated that princes that played the fox had more success than those who fully relied on the lion. His most important statement about wisdom is that a prince should know when to exhibit good conduct to preserve his rule, but also is able to use evil methods when he has
He figures Buck as a kind of the carnival king who parodies the human pursuit of power. London’s novel exemplifies a sense of de-hierarchising the anthropocentric ideology where dogs and wolves are seen on the same plane of existence as humans and not in separate worlds. Through the carnivalesque paradigm, the division between the civilised world of the humans and the uncivilised worlds of animals is blurred in a way that authority at the end is granted to the canine animal over all other types of conventional authorities. Jack London prepares his readers to the carnivalesque paradigm by dressing the canine hero, Buck, in an aristocratic dress of a king whose protection of the Judge Miller's family is merely ceremonial. This is an early indication of parodying the anthropocentric authority.
In Machiavelli’s The Prince, Machiavelli explains to Lorenzo De Medici that a ruler must have the characteristics of a lion or a fox, and must be willing to break their word when it suits their purpose in order to be effective. I believe that Machiavelli is correct, a leader must be beast-like to be effective, and willing to break their word for the greater good. In the next few paragraphs I will discuss how a Prince must have traits that resemble a lion in order to be effective. Then I will relate this to Lorenzo De Medici, resembling the characteristics he has to that of a lion. After that, I will explain why a leader needs to break their word through advice that Machiavelli gives to Lorenzo De Medici from The Prince.
He was called this way because he had a savage lion whom called himself Fang. Fang had been terrorizing the nearby Bugzy villages.” He continued. “We were at war! We were never able to slay the savage beast, until, they came along.” The Prince squeaked, “Who were they, Great Grand Daddy?” He replied, “The six legendary hamsters!” The Great Grandfather continues his story. “The Water Hamster, the one who summons water.
We can tell that Hercules is depicted on the vase because of the muscular build, facial hair, and something that is not shown on this artifact, but the wearing of a Lion’s head. In this visual, we can see Hercules, with the boar on his shoulders, proudly resting his foot on top of the rim of the Pithos and we can see Eurystheus cowering as if he was pleading for his life. Consequently, it looks as though Eurystheus is frightened of the boar that Hercules brought back and decided to turn to his pithos to hide from
2.3.1. The lion In Hogwarts, the emblematic animal of the house of Gryffindor, whose members possess character traits such as courage, bravery and determination, is a lion. In the Bible and Christian belief, Jesus is referred to as the “Lion of Judah” and is frequently identified as a lion.
