Detailed description

Sculpture "Lion's Weight Susa", cast

Unlike the Babylonians and the Elamites, for whom stone weights in the shape of ducks were common, the Assyrians preferred weights made of bronze in the shape of lying lions, which found their place on a rectangular base. The handle was intended to facilitate use.
The original of this magnificent animal sculpture was discovered in 1901 during excavations by Jacques de Morgan in the Acropolis of Susa. Original: Bronze, Iran, 5th century BC, Achaemenid period, Musée du Louvre, Paris.

Replica made of hand-patinated resin. With certificate of authenticity. Size including pedestal 10.5 x 9 x 19 cm (h/w/d). Weight approx. 0.9 kg.
