Product Description

A great Venice souvenir... The Lion of San Marco Scultpure! With your Venice souvenir, we will include an Italy and Venice, Italy postcard... FREE!

Basilica di San Marco (Saint Mark's Basilica), church in Venice that was begun in its original form in 829 (consecrated in 832) as an ecclesiastical structure to house and honour the remains of St. Mark that had been brought from Alexandria. St. Mark thereupon replaced St. Theodore as the patron saint of Venice, and his attribute of a winged lion in time became the official symbol of the Venetian Republic. San Marco Basilica, built beside the Palazzo Ducale, or Doges' Palace, also served as the doge's chapel. It did not become the cathedral church of Venice until 1807.

4.5" x 3.5" Poly-resin, hand-crafted, hand-painted in Italy!
