Description from Gail Layne: The Lion and Serpent pendant represents a sculpture done by Antoine-Louis Barye in the 19th century. The sculpture is said to be a tribute to King Louis-Philippe upon his accession to the throne. The story behind the scene in the pendant seemed to be one that might be depicted in a stained glass window.
