Saint Mark teaching the Lion.


1 Comment


This doorway is in the East wing of the Basilica San Marco and shows St Mark holding an open book symbolising the education of the winged lion. The carved bas-relief is quite dramatically lit by the spotlight on the corner of the Doge's palace and the docent and his small group of tourists gives a guide to the scale.
