Chinese Guardian Lions

This pair of Chinese guardian lions were presented by Sir John Ramsden in 1958. They are superb examples of Chinese sculpture and are similar to those made of bronze, which stand in the grounds of the Imperial Palace at Peking.
These stone lions weigh about ten tons each and were probably made in the 18th century, though they may possibly date from the Ming period (1368-1644).
Please do not climb on the lions.
