Detroit Lions are a football team.

My former college roommate currently has my copy of the book, but as I recall, there may have been something hidden in the lion's mane.  For anyone who has the book --- is there anything there?

Just an observation.  Look at the strange mask behind the butterfly.  There appears to be what may be the letter h or n over the left eye.  There is a line that goes up from where the nose would be and continues over the left eye.  It looks to me to be a small letter n.  Now, not using the line added, just use the outline over both eyes......m.  Hmmm, looks like I'm back to where I started with this....how interesting.

The upper part of the mask appears to be a map.  It actually looks like the southern part of Africa, with the Island of Madagascar thrown in.  I can't seem to fit it with any U.S. location however.

Has anyone taken the time to look at the lion's hair --- I believe something is hidden in it --- letters or numbers.

Yes Egg, there do appear to be several letters/numbers scattered throughout the lions mane...I have not been able to make neither heads nor tails of them though.  

The part of the mask I was referring to is located just above the eyes.  I see what you refer to as maplike.  Now, what would one of my posts be without a stretch?  Here goes:

Excluding the smaller specks/dots/formations low on the mask, you have (from left to right) what are similar (once again, not exact matches) to Texas, Florida & and 2 formations that could be any number of states.  IF this is the case, than you have 4 states.....which again leads me to my possible burial site of being the Four Corners area.  There are many other things within this P which also leads me there.

I have tentatively paired this P with V1 which I have also found things which could point me here.  Unfortunately, I have yet to locate the "982" which Cat has found in a park in Houston....still looking for that one.   :P

I believe this image falls under the following theme:

April (4 o'clock)
Diamond
Daisy
African Theme
"Africa's Diamond, earth-born star,
Bright harvest of the midnight rock."

The Florida in the mask really jumped out at me.  I don't think the other shapes in the mask are important.  Also, Florida has a lot of theme parks and whatnot.  The lion face looks familiar, like something from a zoo advertisement.

Also the Florida shape suggests either central or Southern Florida (Orlando, Tampa, Miami, etc)

Google: Florida + lion +safari + park =

http://www.lioncountrysafari.com/info/history.shtml

Lion Country Safari, Florida opened in 1967, in rural Western Palm Beach County. At the time it was the first drive through safari park in the country and introduced a new concept to animal lovers, "The Cageless Zoo." The opening generated enormous interest on the part of residents, visitors to South Florida, and the media. The park developed into a popular and successful attraction.

No easy link to the pear yet.

My initial impression of the mask has always been that it is a map of New York City.

Manhatten in the center.  Queens and Brooklyn are to the east.  New Jersey is to the west.  Staten Island to the southwest.  Roosevelt Island is in the East River between Manhatten and Queens.

Maybe on Roosevelt Island?  Teddy Roosevelt liked to go on Safari.  A statue of him stands outside the museum of Natural History, which contains many African artifacts.

However, I never felt that anything else in the picture led to New York.

You're right, it does appear to be New York City.  I just spent a little time with an online atlas and it does appear to be a closer match to NYC than the state of Florida, although it's swapped East-West.

Mind you, they are about the same shape, and Florida has Cape Canaveral (NASA) about where the island is, but I think you're right, it's NYC.

Well, despite my conjecture, I've always felt stronger that image 12 actually represented New York.  

The woman standing over the water has the face of the Statue of Liberty.

Also, the head of the eagle looks exactly like the eagle on the Chrysler building.

One thing to look at in the book:  There is a map that shows how the fairies traveled from Europe to America.  Each group has a horizontal line from their country of origin heading east.

Maybe the lines intersect with the state that the fairies settled in?  Tie this together with the type of stone each fairey had from the verse on pp 20-21 and the picture of the stone in each image to figure out what image goes with what state?

What do you think?

The problem with this theory is regarding the information that one casque resides in Canada and the rest in the United States.  By simply extrapolating those straight lines on a latitudinal map, the top 3 or 4 (at least) could be in no location other than Canada because they are so far north -- unless I am mistaken.

I had wanted this map to be an additional clue very badly, but if it is, it doesn't appear to be that simple.

The hair of the lion has, from left to right, the numbers 33, 79 (upside down), 80, and 36.

Using Fox's latitude/longitude idea, this could indicate South Carolina (Charleston, Columbia, etc.).  We would have to ignore the 36 to do that.

If you ignore the 33 and use 36, you get to North Carolina.

However, I was just looking at Mapquest, and Charleston SC is almost an exact match to the coastline on the map.  Bingo!  just zoom in one time, and pan north:

[url]http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?searchtype=address&formtype=search&countryid=250&addtohistory=&country=US&address=&city=charleston&state=sc&zipcode=&h
istoryid=&submit=Get+Map[/url]

The main street in downtown Charleston is "King" Street (king of the jungle).

Edit:  here's a better map:

The coastline is almost an exact match. I'm sold on this one being Charleston. I found the following on Charleston-related website (http://www.charlestonlowcountry.com/abo ... gtour.html)

"The washers at the ends of the rods can be seen on the outside of the homes. I noticed that several of the washers had been covered with decorative metal lions’ heads. There is a definite lion theme in this area. It can be seen in statues placed at front doors of homes, lion decorations placed on top of and around buildings, and lion faces forged into the iron gates."

Maybe this is the reason for the lion in the picture. Charleston had a minor league baseball team in the early 80's (and still does) which might connect to the image in the shape of a home plate.

You're right that the fruit and branch don't seem to match.  However, that sure looks like a pear.  It just so happens that the name of the main bridge in Charleston, over which goes Rt. 17, is the Silas PEARman bridge.  King Street goes near it, and there appears to be a Martin Park near both of them.  Still researching.............
