(3rd Place – Sculpture)
Title of Art Piece: The Lion’s Den
Student/Artist’s Name: Whitney Jackson
School: Dimond High School
Artist Statement: The lion is a majestic animal and so I carved the head of a lion and purposely left the face blank. The lid is made out of brass to resemble the golden dirt plains of Africa and the grass is carved into the porcelain container to make it look like the lion is resting in the grass.
