Lions of Italy

I follow the story of Adrian Balan on “Lions of Italy” and offer my lion …..Cagliari Cathedral is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy. The church was built in the 13th century in Pisan-Romanesque style. In the 17th and 18th centuries it was renovated along Baroque lines.In the interior, the main attraction is the ambo of Guglielmo, a 12th-century pair of pulpits by one Master Guglielmo, originally sculpted for the cathedral of Pisa. It was taken to Cagliari in 1312 and placed in the nave, near to its third column. In 1669 it was split in two, and the two pulpits placed in their current locations. The four marble lions which supported the ambo are now located at the feet of the presbytery balustrade. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cagliari_CathedralPhoto © Daniela Serra 2016 – All Rights Reserved
