Lions from the Vatican Sculptures
By Antonio Canova (1757 -1822), St. Peter’s Basilica, Rome
Since the 18th century these supremely strong and confident lions have flanked the tomb of Pope Clement XIII in Rome. Created by Canova, the most influential neoclassic sculptor, these awe-inspiring creatures continued the centuries-old tradition of doorway sentinels. Cast in designer resin, our historic lions will guard your bookcase or mantel top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Guardians of the Library I am using this regal pair as bookends, they are an absolute majestic replica and for some reason bring about a peaceful feel to their surroundings. I love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely lions, good quality Like these a lot, they are very well made and stone finish looks good. Nice & lightweight. They're going on a pediment up high so they will look like the real deal. Great value for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent porch highlight This pair of lions is very well made and will certainly stand up to weather of all types. They have been on my front porch wall for quite awhile and look the same as when I first displayed them. Although they appear to be made of some heavy material, they are actually quite light and easily moved but very sturdy.
