The lion of Venice – also known as the flying lion of Venice, It is also the symbol of Venice. A bronze winged lion sculpture in the Piazza San Marco of Venice (Italy). It’s been made in the 12th century. The lion of Venice is set on a column in Piazzetta di San Marco. The height of the column is above 10 meters I think.
I took this photo in 2012 when visiting the city of Venice, Italy.
