Long Description:
The Albertina Museum has a frieze over the side of its building which features a man and woman on either side of a set of seals or coats of arms. At the foot of the seals is a lion on the left and a female sphinx on the right. Since the viewer can only see the front of the sphinx from the ground... it's nature can be verified by looking at the paws of the crouching female figure. The man on the left holds a lyre while the woman n the right is in military garb and wears a helmet and carries a spear.
