Unique one of a kind sculpture

Sicilian Lion Totem – These lion images arose during a trip to Sicily. Lions appeared in many places- in the stones of antiquity, in antique drain pipes, in museum sculptures. They came together and formed a totem that captures the essence of the lion through the ages. This piece was first made in clay and then turned into bronze at the historic Giudice Fonderia in Tuscany, Italy.
