A Chinese lion statue(Bronze version )

Designed,sculpted,rendered by myself.No Uv set,Textured with label functions of Keyshot.
There is a marble version of it https://www.artstation.com/artwork/bZq4m
To simulate China classical-style bronze antique. But this one is original and there is no such sculpture in history. Unlike the lions I've created before,it has an aesthetic style of northern china: Big head, pointed ears, and curly hair/fur.In fact, the lion images of ancient China were not much similar to those of lions in real world.. There were no lions live in ancient china,a small number of lions are tribute to the emperor from foreign countries.But the image of the lion is deeply rooted in the hearts of the people,It comes more from the imagination of the our Chinese people.
