154 - Stone Carved Venice San Marco Lion

Vicenza Stone Sculpture executed entirely by hand by our sculptors.
The winged lion is the symbolic representation of the evangelist Saint Mark, depicted in the form of a winged lion.
The symbolism of the San Marco Lion derives from an ancient tradition of the Venices, according to which an angel in the form of a winged lion would have turned to the saint, castaway in the lagoons, the phrase: "Pax tibi Marce, evangelista meus. Hic requiescet corpus tuum".
The Lion of San Marco is a centuries-old symbol of the city of Venice and its ancient Republic.
