The Magnificent Carousel Lion at Bonnet House Museum


Mary Belle Cordell has selected one of the Bonnet House carousel animals to paint for her entry in the Viva Florida 500, Best in Show Series at Gallery 928 located at 928 NE 20th Ave. in Fort Lauderdale, Florida opening July 25, 2013 6:00pm – 8:00pm.

The ornate saddle that is on the lion featured in her porcelain picture is decorated with colored enamel and 14K gold fired in a kiln at a temperature of 1800 degrees.  The second tile in the picture features the lion wearing the gilded saddle.  What a magnificent beast.

The award winning picture titled Storm on the Beach will also be previewed during this show.
