Lioness
2.5 x 2 x 4.5
Sculpture with bonded bronze.

This sculpture is part of my ancient Egypt studies.   Lion’s symbolic role as a protective sentinel stands as a potent figure.  It appears as an animal sacred to the sun god.  At the cosmic level, an ancient lion-deity guarded the gates of the horizon through which the sun entered and left the world each day.

*  “Lioness” was exhibition at the 89th Grand National Exhibition, The American Artists Professional League, NYC.
