The Lions pair
The Lions, a pair.
The famous marble Lions were originally made by the sculptor Antonio Canova for the Rezzonico monument in Italy
Another pair if Lions exact copies of the originals were then commissioned by the 6th Duke of Devonshire in 1823, for Chatsworth House.
The sleeping Lion was made by Rinaldo Rinaldi.
The Crouching Lion was made by Francesco Benaglia, each weighing 3.5 tonnes each.
31 cm long x 10 cm wide
15 cm tall.
At the Bournemouth War Memorial there are two very similar lions I fell in love with during our first stay a long time ago (we are from Germany). So I was really happy to find these beautiful sculptures here, they just look great. Excellent quality, fast and well packaged delivery. Thank you very much!
