I’ve finally finished my homage to a LFC Cheung Fei lion head. And I like it! I think this lion head would blend right in with all the other LFC heads out there.
I’ve attached the pom poms on and I think they pair quite nicely with the colour scheme and the overall look of the lion. At certain angles, the lion looks fierce. But in others, the lion almost has a wise feel about it. I think it’s all in the eyes.
Next job is to pair it up with the tail and see how it looks as a complete package. Now that’s two LFC heads made, I think I’m getting the hang of making these things. In saying that, I wouldn’t want to do it professionally, it’s still taking me forever to get one made.
On reflection of the making of this lion, I was true to the shape of a LFC lion in regards to using the same measurements for the frame but I deviated somewhat with the painting scheme particularly around the horn. I find that it’s still a “LFC” looking heading but uniquely made by me.
Now onto my next project. I’m hoping to make a red/gold/ lion head. I’ve got one more frame that I’ve already made before I need to slog it out with whittling bamboo strips again!
