Lion with Specs

Granite 8x17x6ft 20.00 tonnes. Location: St Andrew Square, Edinburgh. For sale.

In September 2010 the Lion of Scotland helped to promote one of the Lions Clubs International’s major campaigns to collect used spectacles that are sent to developing countries around the world. Over 300,000 spectacles are distributed each year! Lions International Clubs is the world’s largest service organisation having over 1.35 million members in 206 countries.

A giant pair of spectacles to fit the Lion sculpture was specially made for this event by Thomas Payne a post graduate from Edinburgh College of Art. The heavy rain that prevailed did not spoil the happy occasion.
