Lion's Head, Medici-Riccardi Palace

Lion Head, Medici Coat of Arms, Palazzo Medici-Riccardi, Florence

This lion’s head and the Medici coat of arms (six gold balls) adorn the pedestal to a statue in the courtyard of the Medici-Riccardi palace in Florence. I’m very glad that day was gray and overcast or this would have been too contrasty to photograph- the left half of the pedestal would have been deep inky black and utterly devoid of detail.
