20th-century pair of square concrete planters w/ lions & terracotta patina 13¾"

SKU: 17879


Dating from the twentieth century, a charming pair of pair of square concrete planters with a terracotta-like painted finish. Their shapes feature the winged lion of Venice and Saint Mark repeated on all four corners. In ancient Greek and Roman traditions, winged lion statues were placed outside their homes as a symbol of prosperity, power, bravery, wisdom, and royalty.

Perhaps the most famous association of the winged lion is with the city of Venice, Italy, where it symbolizes the Evangelist Saint Mark, the city's patron saint. The winged lion holding a Bible is a common sight in Venice, representing power and majesty as well as the divine protection over the city.

These marvelous mythical winged lions are still being used today for their symbolic meanings. Add a touch of Italian history and symmetry to your garden or front porch with these lovely square planters.
