description

Summary

The legs and tail of this small lion were originally attached to the body. These parts have been lost, but the holes for the wooden nails are still visible. An incised line marks the mane of the lion. The animal's expression, with his closed mouth, suggests calmness and majesty to demonstrate his relationship to the king and the divine.
