In good overall condition, perfectly intact, of excellent workmanship and original
Nice Lion of St. Mark, The Most Serene in high relief, in Botticino marble. This artwork was entirely carved and worked by hand. It comes from the city of Venice and was placed in the main hall of one of the most important noble palaces.
Please note the precision and the attention to detail. The anatomy of the lion is carved with much accuracy (nails, muscles, mane and wings).
There are several symbolic interpretations about the combination of lion and book. In this case, the open book is considered the symbol of the sovereignty of the State.
However, such interpretations are not universally accepted as the Most Serene Republic never codified its own symbols, which were represented in an unequivocal way.
The Gospel bears the engraving of the typical Latin words which mean “Peace be with you, Mark, my Evangelist”.
Good dimensions (not excessive), well proportioned. It is quite heavy but not too much. You can easily hang it on the wall with some old pieces of iron, or you can lean it on a surface.
The item is in perfect condition and completely intact in all its parts.
This lot is one of a kind, of excellent quality and workmanship, fine and elegant, but at the same time powerful and muscular. Prestigious and excellent workmanship.
