The lion is universally considered as a symbol of royalty, power and nobility. His muscular body, his mane, his sharp gaze, sharp teeth and the shape of the claws arouse in us the impression of perfection: the "king of the forest".
This was the input that the architect received from the client: "I want there to be a master work in my salon that represents strength and power; it must be impressive, but at the same time make feel comfortable the people guested in the large reception hall of my house".
Then a study activity started with our artists and the architect to find a balance of shapes and sizes that best expressed the customer's desire, to then define the technical aspects (as the location is on the fifth floor of a modern building in the center of Moscow), the method of execution and assembly.
