One of the zodiac signs, Leo the lion was completed in the style of fourteenth century medieval illuminated manuscript. This 6.5" x 6.5" watercolor painting on goatskin parchment is enhanced by the use of a 23.75k (raised) gold gilding frame, mordant gilding in the background. All to compliment the more modern stylized lion.
