Collectible automaton signed by RENATO BOARETTO French artist who recreated the Leonardo Da Vinci's Robot Lion:

In the late 1400s, near the end of his life, Leonardo Da Vinci was commissioned to create an automaton for king Louis XII.
The life-size, wind-up mechanical lion was designed to walk onto a stage (Leonardo being a life long fan of the theatre), amazing the king's court. Upon reaching its predetermined destination, a compartment in the fully automatic lion's chest opened, revealing a fleur-de-lis (a stylized lily) in honor of the French monarchy.
Unfortunately, the lion was lost or destroyed at some point in history. In 2009 automaton artist Renato Boaretto drew inspiration from Da Vinci's lion and made his own version, which walked, swayed its tail, moved its jaws and, of course, had a secret compartment that opened to reveal a bouquet of flowers.

The robot lion is conserved actually at the castle of Clos Luce.

It is a vintage item, it is sold as is. Since most items have been previously used over time, they may show signs of wear. I make every effort to describe and photograph each item and give the most information possible. If you have questions or would like more photos, feel free to convo me. I'll be glad to help.

Please keep in mind that all of my items are vintage and not new. They have been used and loved by previous owners. You can expect signs of wear and use on vintage items. I do my very best to photograph and describe the state of your future treasure. If you have any questions please ask before you purchase. All sales are final.
