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. 

Wreathing the lions for the holidays started in 1992, and has been a popular way to start off the winter holiday season.  Now you can wreath your own lion plush as well. Lion sold separately.
