In this lion art work, I have created families that include parents and baby lion groups. Lions are the most social of all cats, however in reality, they hang out in Prides rather than in family groups. A pride could technically consist of two males and two females, and their cubs. Generally, however, it is a larger group of related females, with two or three males and their offspring. The average lion pride size is about fifteen, but the numbers can vary from three to thirty animals. When they are not hunting, loins hang out together relaxing, grooming each other, or sleeping. Depending on where the pride is located, and what season it is, a lion has a flurry of hard and dangerous work, followed by eating as much as they can, followed by sleeping and relaxing until they are hungry again.

I have incorporated African inspired motifs around the perimeter of this lion art, because it seemed like the right setting to put my pride of anthropomorphic lions into.
