Edward Kemeys's (American, 1843–1907) stately lion statues that flank the museum entrance have inspired these replica bookends. Perfect on an office desk or for bookshelves at home. Our lions are not identical and thus are named for their poses. Our lion pictured on the left "on the prowl" with his tail pointing down. Our lion pictured on the right is "stands in an attitude of defiance," with his tail pointing up. Our lions are cast in polyresin stone and mounted on a wooden base.
12" x 10" each.

What's not to love with these iconic, Edward Kemeys sculptures?! I have used them both to hold books up, as well as, flanking the hall entrance table. Most visible on the table which is where they'll stay.
Got em for my mom- she loves them
Stunningly beautiful lion bookends. Love them.
