About

Oil on canvas of one of the lions from The Terrace of the Lions, Delos, Greece. Canvas measures 30 x 25; frame dimensions are 38 3/8 x 33 3/8 x 1 5/8. Artist's initials and date, lower right. Weight is 14 3/4 pounds. The Terrace of the Lions was dedicated to Apollo by the people of Naxos shortly before 600 BCE. It is originally thought to have had nine to twelve squatting, snarling marble guardian lions along the Sacred Way; today, one is inserted over the main gate to the Venetian Arsenal. The lions create a monumental avenue comparable to Egyptian avenues of sphinxes (Wikipedia). Today only seven of the original lions remain and are housed in the Archaeological Museum of Delos. Marble replicas are currently at the site.
