Plush toy inspired by Edward Kemeys’ Lion, 1893 from the Art Institute of Chicago’s collection.

The Lions have stood at the Michigan Avenue entrance since the building’s inaugural year. Modeled by Edward Kemeys, an essentially self-taught artist and the nation’s first great animalier (sculptor of animals), the lion pair was unveiled May 10, 1894.

Take home a playful and huggable lion to enjoy.  Perfect gift for the young (at-heart) museum lover!
