Roaring Lion by Charles Dorizhi
Judging by his posture this lion looks more like he is trying to impress with his roar rather than about to attack something. The artist is Charles N. Dorizhi and the lion is carved out of Soapstone.
The statue weighs 5 pounds 7 ounces. It is 6 1/2 inches tall, 10 1/4 inches long and 3 inches deep.
