A Parade of LEOs - VI


Cold-Painted Spelter Lion Sculpture, Possibly German or Austrian (LEO Design)


We celebrate the first few days of LEO with a "parade" of leonine beauties—now in-stock at LEO Design.  

This fabulous feline is not your everyday tin lion.  Indeed, the incredible detail of the sculpting and casting—not to mention the wonderful painting—raises this LEO to a higher plain.  The coiled energy of this recumbent lion, as he scrutinizes his domain, imbues a sense of of life to this beautifully-rendered sculpture.  Made in the Twenties or Thirties, of finely-cast spelter, an alloy comprised primarily of zinc.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.

More handsome LEOs tomorrow and in the days to come.
