A Lady had a square piece of bunting with two lions on it, of which the illustration is an exactly reproduced reduction. 
She wished to cut the stuff into pieces that would fit together and form two square banners with a lion on each banner. 
She discovered that this could be done in as few as four pieces. 

How did she manage it? 

Of course, to cut the British Lion would be an unpardonable offence, so you must be careful that no cut passes through any portion of either of them. 
No allowance whatever has to be made for "turnings," and no part of the material may be wasted. 
Remember that the banners have to be perfect squares, though they need not be both of the same size.
