Ornament in the form of a mythical beast, anoniem

Ornament in the form of a mythical beast, anoniem

bronze, h 6.0cm × w 10.0cm × d 2.0cm. More details

This mythical beast once adorned a lamp or other bronze object. It combines the head and body of a horned lion with the feet and tail of a bird. The skill and artistry of this piece lies in the balance between the exuberant curling tail and the curving forms of the body.
