124:365 Lion in the Living Room
There are two of these, actually. They are miniatures of the bronze lions that flank the entrance to the Chicago Art Institute, and they live on the piano in my living room. Lately I have been intrigued by the things that make me feel safe and at home, thus there are other bits of life there . . . the lion is the focus, but the other bits - a lamp shade, some of my mom's artwork, some photos, more sculpture (another lion actually!), some books, the shutters - all things that I am happy to have around me somehow.
