The Tusk Lion Trail 2021

See David Yarrow’s custom-printed and painted lion – which we were proud to have sponsored and assisted in the production of – alongside 46 other life-sized lion sculptures, designed and made by some of the planet’s foremost artists, musicians and sportspeople. The lions are roaming streets around the world to highlight the threats currently faced by ‘the King of Beasts’, and to raise vital funds to support community conservation and livelihoods impacted by Covid-19 across Africa.

Curated by Chris Westbrook, this is an art trail like no other. The sculptures take you on a tour of iconic locations around the globe, from Piccadilly Circus in the heart of London’s West End to the forecourt of New Zealand’s Parliament building in Wellington. The lions bring to life the stories of these iconic predators as well as the people who work tirelessly to protect them.
