Artist's Description

The Lion of Saint Mark, representing the evangelist St Mark, pictured in the form of a winged lion holding a Bible, is the symbol of the city of Venice and formerly of the Republic of Venice.

It appears also in both merchant and military naval flags of the Italian Republic.

The Lion of Saint Mark is also the symbol of the award of the Venice Film Festival, the “Golden Lion”, and of the insurance company Assicurazioni Generali.

Other elements often included in depictions of the lion include a halo over his head, a book, and a sword in its paws.
