Door to the Lion's Kingdom

Door to the Lion's Kingdom

Piece description from the artist

A large male lion stands guard at a stone door. On this side of the portal is a room made of brown stone. The doorway is made from a columned arch. Beyond the exit is a bright exterior with grassy hills and blue skies filled with puffy white clouds. The lion stands with a sense of might, right in the middle of the opening. He looks just above you as if you are not worthy to pass.

I've been in a big cat mood for several weeks now and this the latest artwork for my gallery featuring lions, tigers, and saber-toothed cats. The theme of a lion guarding a passageway is common throughout western culture and religion. Lions are perhaps the oldest of animal symbols in art. In fact, lion headed statues representing some sort of god have been found in Germany dating back as much as 40000 years!

To create this image I used both digital sculpting and painting techniques.

Thanks for looking!
