The lions are described in an article on the refurbishment of the chateau of Martinvast: "The layout of the porch is curious in more than one respect. What makes it particularly striking are its twisted columns resting on lions, fragments brought back from Italy by the current owner." (op. cit., p. 294). A pair of similar stylobate lions, once in a villa called La Fossetta near Reggio Emilia, are in The Cloisters Museum, New York (inv. no. 53.64.1,.2). In a letter to the Roman dealer Guido Sestieri, dating 15 November 1952, the sister of the former owner of the lions purchased by The Cloisters Museum, Marianna Prampolini, mentioned another pair of lions very similar, though slightly longer. They were formerly in another chapel, nearby, property of the same family Friggeri who owned the whole site (see. L. Castelnuovo-Tedesco, J. Soultanian, op. cit., p. 117).
