A handmade replica of a sleeping lion, inspired by the original sculptures by Italian artist, Antonio Canova (1757-1822).

Hand cast in plaster, this ornament has been made in Britain, and could be used as a paperweight or bookend.

The original lion sculptures were created by Canova in 1792 as part of the tomb Monument to Pope Clement XIII at St. Peters Basilica in Rome. In the early 19th century, modern sculpture developed an interest in the classical style, centred on the work of Canova. In Britain, Canova’s greatest patron was the 6th Duke of Devonshire whose gallery is housed at the Chatsworth in Derbyshire.

A majestic home ornament.
