Lions of Windsor
Lions of Windsor 2019 - Thursday 28th November 2019

CIRCLE OF LIFE

Artist: Joanna Dewfall

JJoanna Dewfall has been a mosaic artist for 30 years. She works to commission in the private, public and community spheres. Joanna also created a fabulous Owl of Bath sculpture in 2018 and a Lion of Bath in 2010, both of which were amongst the most popular at the charity auctions.

Circle of Life is the only mosaic lion in the pride. Joanna was inspired by natural stone mosaics to create a lion that could have just leapt from an ancient Roman pavement. The name Circle of Life was derived from the circle or mandala patterns on his back and also the famous theme song from The Lion King, written by Windsor resident singer and song-writer Elton John.

To create the magnificent Circle of Life, Joanna used 4 square metres of mosaic tiles, 10 kilos of grout and 6 kilos of cement adhesive. It took a full seven days to mosaic and grout!

Circle of Life was kindly sponsored by CALA Homes.
