Go behind the scenes with the installation of this three-and-a-half-ton Greek sculpture at the Getty Villa in Malibu. On loan to the Villa through January 2013 as part of a new partnership between the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Capitoline Museums in Rome, the monumental marble "Lion Attacking a Horse" is one of the most storied works of art to survive from antiquity, and has not left Rome in over 2,000 years.

Narrated by Claire Lyons, senior curator of antiquities at the J. Paul Getty Museum.
