This beautiful sculpture was created by Luigi Borro in 1875. It's located in the Campo Manin in Venice. The winged lion is a traditional symbol in Venice, symbolizing St. Mark the Evangelist, the city's patron saint. The symbol of the lion comes from the Gospel of Mark: "remember the voice of John the Baptist in the wilderness, rises like a roar, announcing the coming of Jesus to men. " His voice was said to be like a lion roaring. The shadows on the sculpture were gorgeous and worked so well with the architectural detail and cast shadows on the walls. Framed, 15 3/4" x 19" Image, 10" x 16"
