Object description :

"Fountain Mask, 18th Century Stone Feline Mask"
- This carved fantasy mask is a fragment of a facade ornament. The use of this type of mask/face dates back to Antiquity. They had a protective role, that of keeping away demons. In the 18th century, the taste for fantasy and exoticism made the mask one of the essential ornaments of architecture and facade modeling. A large number of masks on the same building reflecting the financial wealth of the owner, it was customary to display his good taste and wealth in this way

- This strikingly realistic representation illustrates a massive feline head, with eyes wide-eyed, with wide nostrils, furrowed eyebrows, erect ears with mouths exaggeratedly open to allow water to escape.

- Fragment that can be reused at the mouth of a fountain.
