Receding Hair Lion


One day, I left a studio assistant to finish up the lion I’d been working on.  Returning from lunch, he told me with some embarrassment, “I didn’t do too well in anatomy in art school—I think I welded the lion’s mane on too far back.”  He didn’t do too well in anatomy, but he was an excellent welder and that mane was on there to stay, so I tried to look at the mistake as an opportunity.  And that’s how we came to know ROARGAYNE, THE RECEDING HAIR LION!
