Winged Lion - Item #733

Patina Options

Each piece is custom finished. Depending on a sculpture’s texture and level of detail, the look of a patina can vary. A slight variation in color from order-to-order is to be expected.

Unless otherwise noted, our reproductions are hand-cast in plaster and reinforced with burlap, fiber strands, and/or metal rods for extra strength.

 

FLAT WHITE: A unified, matte white finish. This is the optimum patina for cast drawing as it allows focus on form.

      

WHITE PATINA: A white finish with a light ivory tone added to the top surfaces.

       

LIGHT ANTIQUE PLASTER: A soft mixture of whites, grays, and yellows to replicate the look of an aged plaster cast.

     

ANTIQUE PLASTER: A dramatic mixture of grays and yellows to replicate the look of an aged plaster cast.

     

BRONZE: A rich brown finish with golden highlights to replicate the look of bronze.

     

STONE: A mixture of lighter tones to resemble natural stone.

 

DARK STONE: A mixture of darker tones to resemble natural stone.

 

SANDSTONE: A soft base color with warm highlights to resemble the look of natural sandstone.

 

TERRA COTTA: A variation of warm tones to resemble terra cotta.

 

ASSYRIAN STONE (Applies only to item numbers 3, 4, 5, 6 and 738): A two-tone patina augmenting the shallow relief sculpture and its stone texture.

TANAGRA PATINA (Applies only to item numbers 317, 318, 319, 320, 800 and 813): A finish that replicates the colors of the Tanagra figurines as shown in the product images.

18.5 Inches High x 5 Inches Wide x 6 Inches Deep

This winged lion or griffin was likely an architectural feature or a furniture detail. It may have been upright against a wall or as part of a piece of furniture. Alternatively, it may have been placed horizontally as a gargoyle, a feature that diverts rainwater from a building's walls. The lack of detail where the wings meet in the back as well as the elongation and compact form of the lion point to either usage. The lion is augmented by ornamental details, including the small scrolls into which the wing tips morph and the acanthus-like leaves protruding from the lion's head that join the wings. When in profile, the tail is visibly forming to the curve up the lion's back. Since this piece was not offered in the early 20th century Caproni catalogs, we believe it was added to the collection sometime between Pietro Caproni's death in 1928 and Lino Giust's ownership in the 1960s through the 1980s.
