Reclining Nude Lion

Tonight's illo finished and sent off at 11pm for tomorrow's deadline. A very odd offering even by my standards! The article mentions the fact that 'Passant Gaurdant' lions in heraldry were known as 'leopards'. The small incidental I based my illo on was about a heraldic painter (back in the day) that visited a real lion for the first time in a zoo and remarked that this couldn't be a lion as he had painted many in his career and they definitely didn't look like that! The reclining nude Lion model being ignored just seemed to fit the bill!
