Old Lioness Dreaming of a FeatherbedSave Favorites
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.
