Our Lion piece depicts the image of a cast iron door knocker regally placed upon the gate of an old New Orleans estate.
Although one thinks of iron to be black and covered in a rough finish, this piece depicts far more than that. The faded areas of the metal reveal a brassy color from the years of usage. Although the lion is stoic and intimidating, there is some curiosity ignited when gazing upon it, encouraging one to reach out and knock in order to discover the historic adventure behind this beautiful enclosure.
Our lion is sturdily set upon an emerald green background, which enhances the white and brass highlights of this majestic beast. How regal would this piece be in a foyer or study!
