about this painting:
The most majestic of all animals
Traditionally, a framed artwork depicting a lion is considered to be a tribute to power of the king of beasts. However, the most exacting people would say that it’s wrong. Lions are not the biggest animals, even inside the cat family. They are, obviously, not the strongest. So why bother? It’s just a big lazy cat.
We would dare to disagree, though. Lion may be inferior in size or power, but it definitely doesn’t lack grandeur and pride. This majestic cat is a symbol of quiet confidence and self-respect. So let’s agree with the artist who depicted this majestic lion with due respect.
Purely animalistic art?
If you’ve been searching for a framed work online for quite a while, you’ve probably seen dozens of conventional lions depicted in the middle of a dry savanna. But this one is absolutely different. Leonid Afremov’s paintings are always ambivalent. Take this lion, for example. With all its grandeur and kingly look, it seems so tender and – we dare say – affectionate! Just like this delicate flower it’s looking at, the king of beasts appears to be very vulnerable. If we keep on contemplating this beautiful animal, we will find it thoughtful and wise. These traits are usually attributed to people, but can we tell for sure there is nothing human about this lion? Can’t it also stop and stare at something beautiful thinking about its fragile nature and the brevity of life, like we do?
