This African lion sculpture was expertly carved in exquisite detail by Illinois sculptor Kent Quesnell (1923-2007). Internationally known, Mr. Quesnell's works in both wood and marble were commissioned by several U.S. presidents and were exhibited across the country. In the early 1990's, he spent several months at the Vatican, carving marble flowers for the Bernini Altar in St. Peter's Basilica. Pope John Paul II would stop in to watch the process and discuss art with him. This sculpture was done in 1984, when he was 61 years old.

Entitled "Silent Thunder," this majestic lion was intricately sculpted of lime wood and stands on a curving pine base. Measuring 7 inches tall to the top of his head, he stands 9 inches long on the 11 1/2 inch long base. Weighing 1 3/4 pounds, the entire piece is in excellent condition, with no cracks, missing pieces or chips and no real discernible wear. Mr. Quesnell signed the work in detail. His hand inscribed information on the bottom reads as follows:

SILENT THUNDER
AFRICAN LION.
Lime Wood Figure
Pine Base.

Followed by his signature in script:

Kent A. Quesnell
11.15.84

On the upper left of the bottom he wrote:

Carvings by Kent
Galena, IL.

This handsome carved wood sculpture is a dramatic artwork to take pride in for many years to come.
