Guardian Lioness - Blue. Sculptor Francisco Polope. Porcelain Type Gloss and metallic lustre. Base Included. Limited Edition 188 pcs. - 01001990
NOTES: Guardian Lioness - Blue. Limited edition sculpture of a guardian lioness with her cub in blue and gold enamel, as the protector of Buddhist temples and palaces, representing the circle of life. For thousands of years, these majestic creatures have represented the best omens in Eastern culture. Artists at the LladrÃ³ High Porcelain workshop have recreated this ancient tradition in these limited edition pieces, richly decorated with lustres and various textures and finishes. These lions, inspired by traditional statues of bronze, iron or granite which flank the doors of palaces, temples and noble houses in various Eastern countries, are presented in pairs and protect the buildings from evil spirits. Seen from the front, the male is located on the right and takes care of the structure, represented by the ball he holds with his leg, while the female is located on the left and cares for the inhabitants. This lioness is paired with the guardian lion (blue) and there are two other decorative versions. Blue tones are predominant, in addition to a border in gold lustre with alternating gloss and matte finishes. Artists of the High Porcelain workshop recreate and embellish every detail of the piece, such as the elaborate ornamentation of the skirts and chest plates, the introduction of the necklace as a decorative element and the lavish modelling of the manes and tails. Authentic filigree work makes these impressive sculptures a work halfway between the thousand-year-old tradition and the makerÂ´s creation.. The Collection Shop is an Authorized Lladro Dealer.

Lladro was founded in 1953 when Juan, Jose, and Vicente, three brothers born of local farmers and endowed with great artistic talent, formed a small family company in the Valencian village of Almacera, Spain. Since then, Lladro has undergone an amazing metamorphosis from an artisan workshop to a huge firm of international scope enjoying continual growth. The company management has remained in the hands of the Lladro family, the owners of the firm, since its inception. The creative team started out by adapting styles from past eras, but it was not long before certain characteristics appeared that would soon shape what was to become the unique Lladro style.
