“Sculpture Is The Art Of Intelligence” – Pablo Picasso

Nothing could be closer to the truth, than the sculptures of Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598 – 1680). No other artist in history was more involved in the appearance of Rome, as we see it today. Bernini was respected and favored by many Popes during the 17th Century.

To capture Bernini’s eye for texture, and Cosmin's impeccable replication, we’ve selected artisan craftsmen, with a long lineage in the art and trade of creating museum quality pieces. Your silver lion sculpture has been cast in .925 solid silver. He comes complete with certificate of authentication and stamped with a unique serial number.

With only 1000 available worldwide, you simply won’t find another replica of Bernini’s Lion so intricately crafted in solid silver.
