Vikrama: The Ashoka Lion (in pair)

Rabi Sahoo

The lion, a symbol of valor and strength, was a integral signature of the Mauryan Empire (4th to 2nd century BCE), which was the first empire to rule over most of India. The period was also significant because it represented a transition in Indian art from use of wood to stone. The detailed carving of animal capitals have survived even today; the finest being the Lion Capital of Ashoka from Sarnath that is now the National Emblem of India. This sculpture derives inspiration from the art that thrived during the era and has survived even today. The single lion capital, with its typical elaborate carving, lends a new definition to majesticity.

Suggested Placement: The courtyard or the entrance.

Note: With respect to size, the statue can be custom made -- hand sculpted over a specific time frame.
