The massive sculpture of a Lion Attacking a Horse hasn't left Rome in over 2,000 years, but it feels right at home sitting in the Atrium of the Getty Villa. The giant marble, on loan through January 2013 as part of a new partnership between the Getty Museum and the civic museums of Rome, has long been an isnpiration to artists. Its iconic battle of breasts achoes through centuries of art, from a Roman mosaic of a lion attacking a wild ass to a French tapestry showing a leopard mauling a zebra in Brazil, both pieces found in the Getty's collection.
The sculpture, nearly 5 feet tall and more than 8 feet long, has also attracted admirers for centuries. Many replicas were reproduced in bronze on a much smaller scale, particularly for the Grand Tourists who visited Italy from the late 17th century.
