Description
Rendered with vivid naturalism in a medium that befits the animal portrayed, this lion roundel is an exquisite example of ancient roman metalwork. With a wide-open mouth, the lion holds between large fangs a bronze ring, elegantly ornamented with incised lines. This linear pattern echoes the decorative striations that form the dramatic mane and whiskers of the lion. As we gaze at the feline eyes, we can almost imagine this powerful beast bursting forth from the roundel with astonishing strength and graceful beauty. How captivating is the image and how timeless in its ability to arouse our senses. As we enjoy this beautiful work of art we can see and appreciate the ancient Roman metalworkers accomplished talents in manipulating the highly responsive medium of bronze. - (FZ.300)
