Photographer's Note

If you drive from Karachayevsk to the north along the left bank of the Kuban River to the suburban settlement named after Kosta Khetagurov (around 830 m above sea level), you will see at the left up on the mountains the famous Shoana Church (1033 m of its altitude).

After the church, If you go further up to the highest point (around 1200 m above sea level) of this road crossing the watershed between the Kuban and Kardonik rivers, you will see these rock formations, one of which was called by me as “Lion, the King of Beasts”. I could not find any information or images of this natural sculpture in the Internet. Maybe, in the Internet my shot is the first photo of this artwork made by the nature.
