Bibendum
Looking towards the Sacred Lake, the famous ancient lions of Delos, carved from Naxos marble, numbered at least nine; five have been replaced by copies, a sixth was removed by the Venetians in the 17C and today stands guard over the Arsenal of Venice, and the other three have disappeared. Seated and arranged at different levels, these long-bodied beasts with intricate manes convey a powerful impression of restrained force. Their hieratic nature and stylisation of form suggest a near-Eastern influence.
