Lion Head (medium)
Regarded as the king of beasts the lion is a solar symbol and a sign of power and leadership. In its zodiacal aspect of Leo its ruler is the sun, and its element fire. The sign is associated with warmth, generosity, creativity, courage, and leadership, although it can also be egotistical, proud, and autocratic. As a symbol of strength and untamed wildness the lion has been regarded as both a friend and an enemy to humans throughout history.
This superbly detailed Lion Head is part of our Cotswold Collection; finely crafted ornaments suitable for both indoors and outdoors.
Cast by hand in frostproof casting stone the Lion Head can remain outdoors all year round. The ornament is 20cm wide, 22cm high, and weighs about 1.9kg. The colour is Cotswold sandstone. It is cast with a strong hook at the back for secure display. All our ornaments are cast and coloured by hand in our workshop in Zeeland, the Netherlands.
Actual colours can differ from the photos. Because all our ornaments are made and finished by hand no two are exactly alike.
