Description

This sculpture was purchased by a former nearby Galleria showroom owner after a trip to Venice. Also known as the Lion of St. Mark, it’s a symbol of the city of Venice.

This sculpture was actually intended as the centerpiece of a fountain and has plumbing lines running inside it. The Design Center maintains the traffic circle and placed the lion in the center in 1988 before installing a sprinkler system and planting the grass.

Location

698 8th Street, in the roundabout’s center
