    in my very own opinion, as this photo aged the message of this photo or the way the viewer analyze the image or give meaning to the image differs from the past. maybe back then its entertaining but now most of the people including me will pity the lions. anyway we can learn a lot from this photo, just by studying it. its like studying history visually :-)
