At the end of last week I went to pick up a lion. (One of the more exciting aspects of being an artist!)
This lion was quite extraordinary – he was very quiet – in fact he didn’t move at all – but I am hoping I will breathe some life into him.
Poor lion – all trussed up in bubble wrap!
So this is the story :
I am being sponsored by Zenith International to mosaic a lion for the Lions in Bath project. The project is like the King Bladud’s pigs project 2 years ago. 100 fibreglass sculptures are decorated and then displayed around the city of Bath for the summer. In the autumn they will be auctioned off, and a high percentage of the proceeds go to the chosen charities.
You can see more about the project on the Lions of Bath website
I think we will get on just fine – maybe a little fight over space from time to time!
