Before carving a full size figurehead, a scaled down copy in the form of a maquette was often made to give the client an idea of how the finished figure would look, and as an aid to the carver. A mould was taken of the original maquette, to create this limited edition of 50 lions cast in resin bronze. A few of which are still available at £400 for a pair or £230 for a single lion.
