Oscar - À la vie, à la mort

I was leaving the Aarhus University library, 
when this book on the new arrival display caught my eye.


I halted to an abrupt stop.

Oscar - a name that's in the international news, because of achievements and mis-achievements and the conséquences thereof.

À la vie, à la mort; to life, to death. 

A dark-haired boy without ancles and feet.

And a lion comfortingly touching the boy.

May the Lion comfort a boy who is younger than my own.
