London, Bristol, Edinburgh – UK | The Hamptons – USA

A global celebration of African lions and the people who live alongside them through exceptional art.
47 life-sized lion sculptures, designed and made by some of the planet’s foremost artists, musicians and sportspeople, have been roaming streets around the world to highlight the threats currently faced by ‘the King of Beasts’, and to raise vital funds to support community conservation and livelihoods impacted by Covid-19 across Africa.
Curated by Chris Westbrook, this was an art trail like no other. The sculptures took you on a tour of iconic locations around the globe, from Piccadilly Circus in the heart of London’s West End to the forecourt of New Zealand’s Parliament building in Wellington.
The lion sculptures bring to life the stories of these iconic predators as well as the people who work tirelessly to protect them.
