This work was planned for the exhibition in BizART around a decade ago. Originally, I intended to place an anesthetised lion (without cage, or chains which would bind it) in the middle of the exhibition hall, as if it was asleep. The sketch depicts the whole process on the opening day in detail. A fake lion, closely simulated (in terms of breathing, body temperature, smell and movements etc.), would replace the living one, before the opening ended. The fake lion would be kept in the space until the exhibition finished. Due to budget shortage, this project was suspended. But a lion head was made and kept in the studio.
