This resin reproduction was cast from a mold of an original Greek sculpture in the Antiquities Collection at the Getty Villa dated from about 550 B.C. Sitting calmly with its head turned to the side and his mouth closed, this lion looks less than ferocious. Certain stylistic features indicate it was made in Lakonia, the area controlled by the city of Sparta: the S-shaped curve of the tail; the large, round head; the mane an upright ruff of fur standing out in a circle around his face; and the incised flame-like locks on his neck and the back of his head.
