Location: Landsitz Brünningshilden near Kladow a. d. Havel
- Dienten before the entrance of the Landsitzes as temple guardians
Origin: China around the turn of the century
Excerpt from the magazine "Bauwelt" from 1925:
The entrance is flanked by two stone lions from China who served as temple guardians there.
The lion on the right has defeated the "little" lion, on his right foreleg.
The Chinese always represent the vanquished as small. The lion, on the other hand, uses his power as a victor and "plays" with the silk ball; for idleness and play are regarded in China as a sign of the ruler's power.
Specified approximate dimensions refer to a lion.
The base has a surface flaking (see pictures)
Optional: No. 16786 - Stone pool with Chinese mythology
