The gills

Slow and steady. For those who would like to make a lion head from scratch, repair one, have managed to salvage a lion frame and want to patch it up and get it back to its former glory, YOU CAN DO IT! It may seem like a daunting task but if you take it slow and steady, work on one part at a time, you’ll soon start seeing progress.

Initially, I was hoping to have the whole head made from bamboo, but in the end, I decided to incorporate rattan cane into it. The rattan is just so easy to turn into circles and when there are enough joints, it holds fairly firmly.

The top lip

More work, so far, this head feels much more complicated to construct than the previous lion head that I made. And getting the measurements for these bits was so difficult. Got there in the end.
