‘Destiny’ the lion cub has now gone to “The Pride of Paisley” project with a full-on makeover from the Johnstone High School Art Department. The lion project will form part of the Summer Fun Campaign, the highlight of which will be 25 life-size lion sculptures, painted by local artists and schools.
The lions will be located around Paisley’s heritage trail for 10 weeks during summer. At the end of the event the schools can have their mini lions returned and the artists’ life size lions will be auctioned off where all monies raised will go to the Accord Hospice and St Vincent Hospice.
Paisley Museum’s very own “Buddy the Lion” has been the inspiration for this project. There will be, at some point, a trail map published where all the lions and mini lions can be found. A big well done to 2p10 and the designer/painters: Sophie Pearce, Megan McCrory, Lydia McReavy, Millie Spence, Sam London, Aiden McHendry and Ruairi McKiernan.
