A striking work of archaic art showing a muscular lioness leaping onto her prey; a large, powerfully built bull. The lioness is seen sinking her jaws into the beast's shoulder as it buckles under her weight. The powerful and violent image of a lion attacking a bull is found throughout the ancient world. Its meaning is lost to us but it clearly had strong allegorical or protective significance. A highly decorative piece. Height: 8 1/4 inches Length: 10 inches Condition: Fragment, as shown.
