These lovely lions an be found outside the Natural History Museum until 9 September. They were crocheted by Shauna Richardson and represent Richard the  Lionheart‘s crest. They are made entirely out of wool from the Peak District.

Being in a glass cage they were difficult to photograph but I rather like the way you can see the museum reflected onto the lion above.


One thought on “Lionhearted

  1. Wow, they look fantastic, what a lot of work! It took me a while to work out the first photo, but it is a cool effect, seeing the museum reflected over the lions jaws within 🙂
