Vintage Lion's Head Evening Bag
Created in 1989, Versus was a diffusion line of the Italian luxury fashion house Gianni Versace, and was a gift by the founder Gianni Versace to his sister, Donatella Versace. Rather than the head of the Greek mythological figure Medusa, the logo of the main Versace line, the logo for the Versus line is a Lion's head.
