We were driving into the mountains in Sichuan province when we came upon these ancient stone lions. They were created as part of the tomb of FAN Min Que in LuShan County, near Yaan city, Sichuan, China during Eastern Han Dynasty (AD 205). I’m always fascinated by the expressive quality of such figures so I’ve tried to capture that in this small painting.
