Majestic high-relief in Biancone di Asiago marble depicting the Lion of St. Mark, Serenissima.
The work has been entirely hand-sculpted and carved. It comes from the city of Venezia Giulia where it was located in a main entrance hall, a private collection.
The work is an absolute rarity, the lion is depicted crouching, with the book in its claws.
Unusual representation, hard to find. Please note the precision and the attention to detail. The anatomy of the lion has been carved with great accuracy (nails, muscles, mane and wings).
This lot is one of a kind, of excellent quality and workmanship, fine and elegant, but at the same time powerful and muscular. Prestigious and excellent workmanship. Exclusive and unique work.
Perfect if hung on the wall with the help of some irons, or placed on a suitable tripod.
In case of shipping, it will be delivered in a sturdy wooden crate, with appropriate packaging.
