Spirit Lion 6c is a detail of just one element of an array in a kaleidoscopic image (Geometric 2021 - 225, some versions of which are also listed here on my Artling portfolio (Geometric 2021 - 225a7b16, Geometric 2021 - 225a7b7, Geometric 2021 - 225a7b4, Geometric 2021 -225a7b3, Geometric 2021 - 225a7b2)). In all the Spirit Lion versions, this element is rendered so as to make it into a ceremonial mask as might have been used in spirit worship ceremonies, or into a manifestation of the spirit animal itself. In this version (Spirit Lion 6c), I have rendered the face as a total abstraction rather than the face of an actual apparition, as a painting on a warrior's shield for use as a talisman or to frighten the enemy
