As much taxidermy as folk art, this terrifying lion must have certainly been part of a menagerie, as whoever made him was magnificently talented. Wooden teeth, fake eyes, an actual animal skin around a internal frame of unknown material. The mane is gone, long gone, and replaced with another piece of animal skin tacked on with brads. Extraordinary! The entire body is hand-stitched, possibly with sinew...and the lion is ten inches long.
