      Love the sign Leo, confident and interesting people. This figurine is beautiful Jenni, thanks for posting another very pleasing subject.

      Thank you so much for this shout out Newfld and jscott0363 and to all CW Leos too! I adore this lion- I think the colour of him is very bright and eye catching too.
      I think the background really adds to the greatness of this lion, especially the fountain, which brings to mind something like the Lion of Lucerne statue or similar pieces in Italy.
      He's very royal and really I think which is how a lion should really be viewed! :)

      Thank you everyone for loving my Leo the lion

      Thanks Scott for loving both the lion and my fountain, the lion was rather a grand purchase for me so I thought Leo deserved a grand backdrop!

      MrsT thank you also for enjoying both and the lovely compliments, you are always so kind

      Glad you liked my regal lion Ken, I have to agree that intense green is a great color, it photographed so nicely in the outdoor summer sun, but had to ditch a few pix as they were too reflective - done on a 90+ degree day lol! The compliments are always appreciated

      Thank you IronLace for the super compliment, agree about the cool green color, and hope your friend will enjoy this lion and have a spectacular BD - remember to throw a party as Leos love celebrations!

      Lisa many thanks for the kind words and you are spot on about Leos, my best girlfriend growing up is one and she was always super confident as well as being very generous - my moon in Cancer made me the shyer friend lol

      Lauren I am super happy that you really enjoyed this lion, I had you in mind when buying it as I wanted to put a special lion up for your Leo BD (which I know is not till Aug because of your peridot birthstone, but once the calendar goes "into" the next sign I try to do a timely astrology post last I forget later), and glad you thought the fountain enhanced him as did I! Really love your wonderful comments and hoping you will have a marvelous upcoming birthday with great good luck in the year ahead

      Eileen thanks a bunch for the wonderful compliments, it is rare to find a Moser malachite lion, although I have seen other rough cut malachite lions online. I hoped you would enjoy seeing our main entrance waterfall as it is pretty spectacular when all the water jets are on, they were conserving water that day - the owner of the complex is a well traveled district attorney of Italian background so I'm pretty sure he had Rome's Trevi fountain in mind for this one, I keep being reminded of Anita Ekberg & Marcello Mastroianni kissing under it in La Dolce Vita lol

      Thanks ho2 for the really nice compliments, I actually had a pic of the base but deleted it in favor of the fountain, sigh. Now I have re-packed the lion away in protective bubble wrap as don't have a new display case yet (we are still moving in), but once I locate it will post a bottom base pic, for now will describe it to you - looks alot like the top base esp as seen in pic three, with a lighter green swirling inside the dark, sort of like adding green food coloring to cake mix batter. No signature but authenticated as Moser by a German antiques dealer, these malachite animals were numbered (I think my lion is #6) and all have an oval base, there was recently a squirrel online to buy with the exact same coloring and oval base, ggl image Moser squirrel and there may be a shot of the base

      Malkey my warm hearted Leo friend, thank you for your fabulous comment & glad you enjoyed this malachite lion, I love your malachite vase so very happy to find this piece to show you. Much joy and many blessings to you on your birthday & always

      Thanks so much Karen for the lovely words, I am super happy you enjoyed both the lion and fountain, had to be both creative and lucky to take that last photo - used a steel folding table weighted down on bottom w. heavy books as there are cobblestones surrounding that massive fountain & was praying my beloved green lion would not fall & have a "burial at sea" lol, but things worked out. So glad you enjoyed my king of the jungle he's a special one, but I hope to bowl you over in next wk's glass post which is the high point of my collection :)
