Regular price €340

A stunning French terra-cotta sculpture from the early 20th century. It displays an amazing roaring lion with high details. The large work of art is signed by the famous French artist: Jérome Massier (1850-1926). The Massier family is world reknowned for their art, they worked in Vallauris, in the South of France. This one of a kind piece is rare. Do not miss it!

Please take a close look at the photos, they are an integral part of the description. Tiny splinters on two fangs. Unfortunately, the tail was broken and lost. This great piece deserves a restoration. To a certain way, this broken tail makes the lion expression more intense. When I look at it, it seems that the lion is roaring of pain. 

Height: 11" (28cm)
