Lion's Gate south, Coat of arms Leo,Belvedere Palace, Vienna
Limestone from Zogelsdorf, 240 cm hight, 1350 kg. After 24 years since the last restoration was decided to make a copy in shaken cast of fiberglass reinforced artificial stone in case of security reasons.
The lion was crashed and smashed next to a Japanese tour group in 1992. Back then the restoration was commissioned to us and all fragments were sticked together, notched as well as all voids inlayed.
