Lion in Biro





£70 - A3 Framed Print

£39 - A3 Unframed Print


Lions have played a part in mythology for thousands of years. From the tomb of Tutankhamun to English heraldry, the lion has symbolised strength and bravery. They are the only cats to live in family groups (or prides) which can consist of up to three males, a dozen or so females, and their young.

Most of the hunting is done by the females, who act co-operatively, with males defending a territory of up to 100 square miles. Lions once roamed across most of Africa, parts of Asia and even Europe. Although, today they are limited to parts of sub-Saharan Africa.

Done as a commission for a wonderful couple I met at Blenheim Palace Christmas Fair, I've used biro to capture the nobility of these wonderful animals.

Buying Information


All original paintings, if available, use hand-made frames that are painted to the finest specifications. The colours are individually selected to match each piece of art, ensuring the best finish possible. The frames for prints (if available) are standard sized, pre-made, frames that are solid wood and made to the highest quality.


At present, I can only ship to the UK via the web site. A contribution to shipping costs has been included in the price to make things easier.

I can ship to other destinations, but I'll need you to get in touch, using the contact me form, for a quote if buying from outside the UK.

All the art I sell is packaged extremely carefully, to keep your painting safe for it's journey, no matter how far. This can take some time, especially with original paintings, however, I aim to ship all art within 2 working days.
