Very descriptive details.

I took another look at my western Asia figures and in fact there are not many that you could confirm as being lions or tigers, or bears for that matter. See pictures below of a group of four possibles. I guess that I have more frogs & birds than anything else.

The second pic is definitely a lioness (or possibly a tiger?). It is some type of finial piece and still has a bronze rod running through the recessed end piece. It is about 4 inches in length and very finely carved.

Any way, nice acquisition Jake.
