17th Century Limestone Lion's Head on Contemporary Polished Steel Stand

About

What an amazing piece of sculpture! This fierce lion's head is quite large and magnificently-carved from limestone with a depth and crispness that belie its true age. Loaded with moss, it does have a few minor chips that were incurred in shipping, but we can color them if you so desire. The head rests firmly on a separate, and heavy polished steel Stand that is very sleek and so works extremely well in a contemporary setting. Dimensions as follows: Lion's head alone: 15.35" wide x 14.57" deep x 14" high Steel stand alone: 13.75" wide x 12.63 deep x 13.5" high Overall dimensions: 15.35" wide x 14.57" deep x 49.5" high.
