In like a lion, out like a lamb...

The age-old adage “in like a lion and out like a lamb” refers to the wildly varying weather in the month of March. Certainly, this March has been no different, with snow and nasty storms pelting the northeast, and all of us dreaming of cherry blossom season after a long winter. While we all wait it out, check out some lions and lambs, both subdued and fierce, from across the Smithsonian collections.
