In good overall condition, intact, exceptional workmanship, original

Beautiful Istrian marble sculpture representing the Lion of Saint Mark, completely hand carved and obtained from a single marble block. These types of lions come from Venice, where they were usually placed on the window sills or in the highest points of the house. This one, in particular, comes from a private Venetian house. Period: ca. 20th century.
The lion holds a shield with a carved coat of arms between his claws. Probably it represents the coat of arms of the family.
Lot of excellent workmanship and quality.
The marble veins are remarkable and beautiful, like the patina well preserved over time.
It can be placed both indoors and outdoors thanks to its small size and modest weight.
Well proportioned and with appropriate size.
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.
In case of shipping, it will be delivered in a sturdy wooden crate, with appropriate packaging.
Trackable and safe shipping throughout Italy, Europe and the rest of the world, at low rates.

Dimensions:
- base 20 cm x 12 cm, height 4 cm,
- total height 35 cm.
Weight: 10 kg.
