A fantastic pair of Italian, life-sized, carved-limestone, lion statues. Monumental works in the neoclassical style with masterful, expressive detail throughout: thick, flowing manes; exposed ribs and flexed musculature; powerful paws and fierce mouths in a near, sly smile. Set on rectangular plinths with ball and botanical support details. Stone wears a wonderful surface from age throughout with small, scattered fossilized inclusions. Great, impressive scale; classic, dramatic and masculine statuary good for use indoors or out.
