The picture was taken in 2010 at Perth Zoo. I have a real mix of emotions for this image. I am overwhelmed by the beauty and majesty of the lion but have a sense
of loss and sadness as the cat seemed resigned, limp and scared by its captivity. At first sight the Lion seems to be simply basking in the sun but it’s movements speak of a different experience; caged, restricted and domesticated. The power seems to have drained and replaced with repetitive movements and a sense of sadness.
