On this page you can download two ornamental lion vectors, old but beautiful typographic design elements.

Illustrations like these were very popular in the printing industry in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and they were mainly used as decoration on the pages of books and magazines. These ornamental lion vectors come from the book "American line type book, borders, ornaments, price list printing material and machinery", published in 1906 (Author: Daystrom, inc).

These precisely-drawn ornamental lions can be easily downloaded in 2D CAD (.dwg) and vector (.eps and .svg) file formats by clicking on the appropriate link below.

Both vector illustrations depict lions drawn in the same style - instead of tails,  they have scrolls of acanthus leaves. The difference is in the big cat poses: in the first vector image the lion is growling, ready to attack and with its head lowered, while in the other one the lion is roaring, with its proud head raised.
