A figure of a roaring lion, about the size of a loaf of bread, is the latest step in the fight to preserve culture from conflict.It's going on display at London's Imperial War Museum in "What Remains," an exhibition that looks at how war devastates societies' cultural fabric -- and at the ingenious and often heroic steps taken to preserve it.It also grimly illustrates how culture has long been a casualty of conflict.The show covers a century of destruction, from the German army's World War I destruction of the university and library of Louvain, Belgium, to Serbian shelling of the National and University Library in Sarajevo during the Bosnian war in 1992 .It was the International Criminal Court's first war-crimes conviction for cultural destruction."Culture Under Attack" runs through Jan. 5 at London's Imperial War Museum.
