Old Lioness Dreaming of a Featherbed is a beautiful Lion that I met many years ago.  She was rescued and she lived with her rescuer, the ranger who found her when she was a cub.  Sadly her family had been killed by poachers.  She recovered from her injuries, but not good enough to go free.    

I called her Elsa - like a hug cat - so gentle and beautiful, I know that she will no longer be alive, but her time with her keeper was as good as it could be and I admire that work that rangers do to save these animals.

She was actually lying on a bed of straw and old mattresses - I put rocks under her head in my painting to give her a wild feel.  Scratchboard and Ampersand Inks, own photographs and original artwork.
