Commission Of Heraldic Lions
Westminster City Council decided to adorn the exterior of their newly refurbished premises with their Heraldic Lion logos displayed at the entrance.
Stevensons of Norwich were commissioned to produce the Lions - handed left and right - based on a weathered and damaged original.
The original was collected and taken to our Norwich factory where our artists repaired the damage and sharpened the details which time and weathering had degraded. Having brought the original up to standard it was deployed as a pattern for a mould. From the mould a new Heraldic Lion logo was manufactured in our Stevensons-Stone® material. Stevensons-Stone® was selected because it is robust, fireproof to class EN13501-1 and much lighter than natural stone and there more cost effective.
The logos were delivered to London where Angel Interiors applied their paint finishes prior to them being fixed to the exterior of the building by Stevensons craftsmen in time for the official opening of the refurbished building.
