Old skool plagiarism

Here is an original painting by Flemish painter Peter Paul Rubens entitled “The Meeting of Marie de Médicis and Henri IV at Lyon” , one of  a number of paintings in his Medici series. circa  1622-1625

Note the lions pulling the charriot.

Now, have a look at this painting by Paul de Vos entitles “The Ark of Noah”. Unable to determine the date it was painted, but you will note that the lions are identical. Either De Vos copied Rubens, vice versa, or they both copied a common artist.
