Pair of English Large Cast Stone Medici Lions

ADAM LLOYD INTERIORS
Pair of English Large Cast Stone Medici Lions, circa 1910. A pair of statement scale, early 20th century weathered cast stone Medici lions. Excellent casting with lots of detail, very heavy. The Medici lions are a pair of marble sculptures of lions, one of which is Roman, dating to the 2nd century AD, and the other a 16th-century pendant; both were by 1598 placed at the Villa Medici, Rome. Since 1789 they have been displayed at the Loggia dei Lanzi in Florence. Garden statues featuring the two lions found popularity in English country house gardens during the 19th and 20th centuries.

Struck by the affliction in '96 as a design graduate drawn to antiques that have truly lived, sometimes loved, but survived in some part to 'tell the story' or to be re-imagined and awakened once again.

My North Star has always been my design principles of form, function, texture, balance, emphasis, proportion and colour.

For me, my eyes rest easily upon a well worn surface, the knocks, bruises, creases and scars, all part of our life story.

I hope to inspire you to feel comforted, brave and ready to embrace the past into the present of our interiors and lives - imperfectly perfect.
