Subject: Male African Lion Dimensions (inches): 60 x 38 x 22 Medium: Bronze Description: This sculpture is about what the male African Lion is about. His job is to protect his pride and their territory from rival males, but he rarely has to fight to accomplish that. If he faithfully marks his boundaries and spots intruders to chase them off before they reach the pride, he accomplishes his goal with one basic quality: vigilance.
The upright stance for a better view, the concentration in his gaze and the alertness in every muscle are the qualities that express 'vigilance'. But of equal importance are the smoothly flowing lines - of each individual shape and of the overall form - which express the power and elegance of this magnificent animal's life force and the aesthetic impact of his presence.
This piece was commissioned and handled exclusively by a major hotel/casino in Las Vegas until 2000 when their gallery closed. One casting of 'Vigilance' resides in front of Radio Station KOXE in Brownwood, TX.
