I am selling this superb etching capturing the inner life of a lioness fully consumed in studying her quarry for the total cost of AU$267 (currently US$196.34/EUR166.26/GBP142.69 at the time of posting this listing) including postage and handling to anywhere in the world (but not, of course, any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries).
If you are interested in purchasing this amazing etching where every feature in the background adds to the tension of the lioness’ complete attention on whatever she is watching—note how the artist has successful caught the bristling hair covering her coiled muscles—please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
