Ambo (c.1110): Lion Support

Detail of lion support on the marble ambo, made in the early 12th century (some sources say 1110, others 1143) and reconstructed after the roof collapsed in 1196. The Lombard Romanesque sculptures illustrate the themes of sin and redemption. Sant'Ambrogio Basilica, Milan, Italy.
