This stunning pair of life-size striated salmon pink marble lions were meticulously hand-carved from single slabs of marble each. The salmon pink marble has a lovely color, with white and grey flecks and veins which give the lions a more textured look. The lions do not have manes, making them either female lions or the maneless African lions that are usually found in hot climates, like the famous Tsavo man-eating lions.
Each of the lions is in a mid-roar with a fierce gaze, standing on slabs of textured marble that resemble grassland. Both lions are on all four paws in a stance that shows their courageous demeanor out in the wild. Throughout history, lions have symbolized courage, strength, and excellence. In noble British tradition, placing lion sentinels outside castles or manor gates showed wealth and position. These majestic, poised lion statues will lend strength and courage whether flanking an entryway or standing sentinel near a grand entrance.
