This faux oil painting portrays Roman, a beautiful, no-nonsense, and often somnolent male African lion with a thick and flowing mane.
Roman Lion was bred in the U.S. as part of the exotic animal "pay-to-pet" industry. He now resides at Carolina Tiger Rescue. In Africa, wild lion populations have decreased over 40% during the past two decades, and it is now estimated that as few as 23,000 remain.
