Lion Sleeps Tonight

Images of sleeping animals are always desirable. This painting was inspired by The Lion King.
Apparently, The Lion King was originally based on a White Lion and written as a play in China. Hidden in the words of the play is the significance of the White Lion, however, Walt Disney changed the lion to a Golden Lion for wider appeal.
At the bottom of the painting are the words from the famous song In the Jungle – In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight.
