Fenton Rigging Faces Down a 1,700-lb. Lion.

Fenton Rigging was proud to partner once again with the Cincinnati Art Museum conservation and installation departments. This time, we were entrusted with moving the Lion Funerary Monument—a 1,700-lb. statue created around 350 BC—to its new position in the renovated Antiquities Gallery. Ancient breaks in the figure, repaired in the late 80s but still fragile, added to the complications involved in hoisting this irreplaceable artifact. Read more about the move and the logistical solutions we were able to provide here.
