St. Augustine Loves Lions Logo

One of the favorite things people like to do in St. Augustine, Florida is walk the Bridge of Lions and view the beautiful marble lion statues named Faithful and Firm. The lions are the most photographed attractions in St. Augustine,
and they're the icons of the Old City.

Now you can have tiny marble replicas of the lions 
in your home, sold as a single lion or as a set of two.

Why Your Little Lion will Capture Your Heart

 Just as stunning as in a pair, the single lion makes timeless St. Augustine decor for your home, or a treasured farewell gift to another St. Augustine lover. 

Note 1) Please do not buy a single lion with the idea of getting the second one later. These lions are hand-cast in small batches. Each batch comes in a slightly different shade of white. I cannot guarantee you’ll get a perfect match. Note 2) The City of St. Augustine's Visitors Information Center does NOT sell single lions. They only sell the lions in sets of two. Single lions can only be purchased at this website.
They’re hand cast then hand sculpted by Old
World artisans to give you eye-catching decor.

Made of the highest quality genuine Carrara marble from Carrara, Italy, same as the lions on the bridge, giving you timeless art pieces for your home.
  HEIRLOOM QUALITY Your little lion will be as beautiful decades from now
as the day it arrives at your door. 
The lion is 6" L x 3 1/2" W x 6" H with the solid weight of over 2.5 lbs.
There are tiny pads on the bottom to protect your furniture.

Hold your lion up to the sunlight to see how the marble sparkles. We have a special arrangement with the artisans to use only their finest quality pure white Carrara Marble without dark specks in it from marble veins. This quality is usually reserved for government projects only.

You will find that most statuettes today are made with resin or a composition of resin and some other material. This is why they yellow with age and exposure to daylight.

The St. Augustine lion replicas are special in every way. They are made of 90% genuine Carrara marble from Carrara, Italy, the same marble the originals boast of. They contain zero resin, plastic or other inexpensive binders. The lions are crafted by Old World artisans using a decades-old method with high quality materials. Your lions will retain their majestic white marble look and feel to be cherished for generations.

The replicas are made by artisans in Staffordshire, England who practice a difficult and dying art of hand-casting and sculpting. They supply life size statues and small statuettes, like these lions, to some of the most prestigious European galleries and art museums.

It is no wonder then that each set of lions is hand-cast with utmost attention to detail.

Jeff and Gail Kraker Owners of St. Augustine Loves Lions

Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Gail Kraker. I moved to St. Augustine in 2011 with my hubby, Jeff, and our three coconut retrievers.

Like many others, I fell in love with the lions on the bridge. Where else in the New World do we see century old, hand sculpted Carrara marble statues of anything, much less beautiful lions?

I spent a year searching for small replicas of the lions for our home and got only disappointment. After three more years of wondering why and thinking people who love St. Augustine deserve better, I decided to take matters into my own hands.

I made it my mission to bring the first and only marble replicas of the lions on the bridge, Faithful & Firm, to all who want replicas of the city’s icons in their own homes. 

I hope you’ll love the little lions as much as I do. They bring joy to our home and they've become almost human to me.
