These hand carved lion heads are 12" x 12" x about 3.5 deep. You can see that the lion head is not attached to the base, but that a solid piece of marble was used to carve the heads and the background was polished. I believe this is Italian Marble, but I do not know for sure. The sculpture weighs about 15 lbs.Dad was able to confirm with a friend, these were made for the Las Vegas MGM and some are in use. See the pictures for details of the carved tiles. You could use them as back splash.
