Description
The fierce leonine heads of this magnificent pair were perhaps originally attached to a wooden chest or sarcophagus. The box has vanished with the ages, but the lions continue to take their guard duties seriously, with glaring eyes, furrowed brows, and bared teeth. Time has in no way diminished their standing as kings among lesser beasts. We are still in awe of their proud, classical beauty. - (FZ.320)
