The Lion Scaffolding Sculpture is an impressive creation. Not only is it modeled after the king of the jungle, it's a large-scale installation made out of the support frameworks used on construction sites. It shows how something purely practical can be viewed as a thing of beauty as well. In fact, more than that. The Lion Scaffolding Sculpture can be considered majestic.
Designed by United Kingdom-based artist Ben Long, the Lion Scaffolding Sculpture was created for the grounds of Bruce Castle in Tottenham, north east London. Long reveals, "I’ve always loved Landseer’s lions in Trafalgar Square but I suppose what I am offering is an alternative to stone or bronze monuments--Scaffolding Sculptures reflect the change and evolution that the urban environment is constantly subjected to."
