Long Description:
A large bronze sculpture of a winged lion lies at the base of the Venetian patriot Daniele Manin's statue located in the small Manin Square in Venice, Italy. The Lion was sculpted by Luigi Borro in 1875.

The winged lion is a traditional symbol in Venice, symbolizing St. Mark the Evangelist, the city's Patron Saint ever since his remains were taken from a tomb in Alexandria (Egypt) and brought to Venice back in 828 AD.

Depictions of St. Mark's winged lion can be found everywhere in Venice: there is a famous lion on the clock tower in the Piazza San Marco, a lion atop a column in outside the Palazzo Ducale, and other representations everywhere throughout the city. This particular lion sculpture at Campo Marin is just one of many examples.
