Brass Lion, at god Shiva temple, in Bhaktapur Durbar Square. The temple was built right in front of the palace when the Temple happened to be there in one of the dreams of King of Bhadgaun.
This metal Lion, built in 18th century, is made of Brass and is thinly coated with other metals on top. Metal works in Nepal were introduced later. The oldest sculpture are generally built of stone. It is believed that the firsts of many metal statue workers at early times were Buddhist monks working for their vihara religious schools. Metal works flourished most in the last two to three centuries during the period of malle kings when metal sculptures were coated with additional metal as a protective layer and as an ornament to remove degradation and corrosion.
