Product Description

Hand cast in the U.S. from lead free pewter, our winged lion brooch is beautiful with a touch of whimsy. In the Ninth Century, according to legend, two or three ambitious men from Venice stole the remains of St. Mark the Apostle from his tomb in Alexandria, Egypt. After crossing the Mediterranean, the men reached Venice and handed their cargo over to the Doge. The local religious and civic authorities quickly elected St. Mark as Venice's patron saint, and the apostle's traditional symbol, a winged lion, became the logo of the Venetian Republic.
