Lions in Art 3

It’s official, artists love lions. We managed to find art from all over the globe depicting the strong and sultry cattiness of the king of the jungle.

It’s not just about lions, we’ve been doing a lot of art appreciating lately and have more to share. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the first two parts in the series, Lion Art Pt. 1 & Pt. 2.

For now, sit back and enjoy a few more excellent pieces of lion art.
