The Lion

African Big Cat Trio - Lion
21" X 16"
Original Oil

I certainly remember this lion. He was a magnificent male in the Masai Mara with battle scars illustrating his victories. At the time I saw him, he was with a lioness and they were ready to start the next generation. There was no doubt in my mind that he was king of the beasts.

Note: If you compare this to the last post, you will see I took out a stick in the lower right. It was distracting and needed to be edited.

Thank you! He left such an impression on me. This big cat was my favorite male lion from my last 4-week trip in Africa.
