In excellent overall condition and intact, of extraordinary workmanship
Stunning Lion of St. Mark in royal yellow marble, entirely carved and worked by hand, a wonderful reproduction of the symbol of Venice. Full-relief sculpture from Venice.
The item was part of an exclusive private collection of Venetian objects and was placed in a large hall of an important noble palace in Venice.
The quality of the sculpture is extraordinary and the workmanship is incomparable.
This lot is one of a kind, exclusive and not to be missed.
The details are represented with extreme precision and skill, a meticulous work that defines and completes the item in an extraordinary way.
The royal yellow marble used for this work is an added value. In this sculpture it has unusual veins.
The mane and the wings of the lion are beautiful. The Gospel has engraved the typical Latin words which mean “Peace be with you, Mark, my Evangelist”.
The item is small and this increases significantly the value of the sculpture, whose creation is more difficult and meticulous. The weight is not excessive.
Its main feature is the fact that, being in full relief, it can be a central ornament, placed for example on top of a column, not only against the wall.
In short, it is a lot never presented and seen before, a marble ornament fine and elegant but at the same time powerful, strong and proud.
In perfect condition and intact in all its parts.
In case of shipping, it will be delivered in a solid wooden crate with appropriate packaging.
Shipping throughout Italy, Europe and the rest of the world at very low rates, with safe and trackable delivery.
