A Ring with a Mask and a Lion’s Face

In the mediaeval city of Viterbo in Italy, there are many fountains carved with masks and lions. The lions have a formal look, as though done by sculptors who have never seen a lion. I made a ring for fun, with a mask and a lion, and a stone set in a romanesque setting. I have included a 1:1 scale picture at the end, to give an idea of the actual size.
