Handpainted Lion Wood Hinged Box
I have always been drawn to Lions and have collected this beautiful beast for years. Recently I heard an animal expert tell how his latest visit showed the African Lion had declined and he saw concern for this species longevity. I never thought this would happen nor did he. The reason is complex but I thought I could feature a portrait of this majestic fellow the male lion on the lid of one of my wood boxes. If you would like to buy CLICK HERE.
The Lion featured is a very special animal to me and I wanted to portray him with his mane framing his regal face as the sun starts to set on the Serengeti. He is painted first and then I add my ink line work. This gives him the added depth.
