Stunning fragment in Rosa del Garda marble depicting the St. Mark lion “in moleca” (e.g. in the form of a crab).
Coming from an important villa in Venice.
The marble grain is stunning, both for colour and patina.
The anatomy of the lion is precise, the care and precision of the details are noteworthy.
This sculpture was probably part of a larger composition.
Medium sized, well proportioned and of relevant weight.
Suitable to be hung on a wall; it can be displayed both indoors and outdoors.
Exclusive lot, one of a kind.
Item never auctioned before and quite rare.
In very good overall condition, intact.
It will be shipped in a wooden crate.
Safe and tracked shipping worldwide, at reasonable rates.
The item is also available for pickup at our warehouse.
