Bronze sculpture of a roaring lion
A bronze sculpture of a lion on a wooden base

The lion is 40 cm long and in an edition of 10, some bronze, some resin bronze.

When I research a wild animal I rely on videos and photographs online. Zoo animals lack muscle tone and are usually soporific. Stuffed animals need to be very good to be reliable, a glimpse in the wild is inspiring but books where someone else has done all the work on proportions are more useful.
