Limestone, with original polychromy

Impressive stone high-relief depicting horses with the winged Lion of Saint Mark - Venice - late 15th century.
Reviewed by experts who assume it could hypothetically be a work from Verrocchio's workshop.
Horses with the winged Lion of Saint Mark, late 15th century, made of limestone with original polychromy.
On the horses’ head collars the heads of small lions can be glimpsed, please look carefully at "the slab, as its charm becomes visibly more appealing than a painting”.
Invisible central restoration as shown in pictures, a work done by real experts.
As for the relief's story, it has been restored by masters skilled in the art in 1970; to keep firm and well merged the two parts 3 irons have been added, a central one and two side ones, which preserve perfectly the original look of the relief.
Pictures show an image of the original horse's head by Verrocchio for a proper comparison, in case of private purchase we can send important documents relating the true story of the relief.
From a private collection.
Size: 135 x 50 x 12 cm.
Weight: 95 kg.

    Non ha indicato il prezzo di riserva e mi ha detto che non mi avrebbe consegnato il lotto perché il prezzo di aggiudicazione era troppo basso.
    Ora indica il lotto come ritirato ma io non l'ho fatto

    altro errore, io non ho detto che il lotto e stato ritirato, al signore il lotto non è stato consegnato.
