These replicas of the Rialto Theatre Lions were salvaged by Frank Horejsi when the building was demolished in 1986 and is now the site of Union Pacific’s new headquarters building.  This beautiful theater built in 1918 in Omaha, Nebraska, primarily as a movie theater, used the terracotta lions for the exterior trim and detailing.

This smaller of the two lions measures 20″ in diameter, and upon request can have a pipe inserted into his mouth to become a water fountain.  There is only one or two originals left of this marvelous lion, but our replicas are available.
