Lion statue's often guard Hong Kong's most important cultural and commercial location and has become an iconic image of the city. It is also home for me, which is a constant source of pride.

This is an amazing piece. Do these prints come signed or is it a facsimile? Either way, I'm getting one!

Hi Mark, This is an incredible piece of art. I happen to live in Hong Kong and am wondering if the inspiration came from the HSBC building? :)

Also, did you mention putting this on a tshirt?
Marc Allante commented on February 20, 2013 8:51am
Hi Tim. Yes, it was the HSBC lion that inspired this as well as other influences. Unfortunately, no t shirts for this work. Just prints.

This art is just incredible. I want to buy this, but I'm wondering if there are any larger options for the stretched canvas prints? It's listing the 17x24" medium as the biggest available and I want something bigger!? Any options?
Marc Allante commented on March 25, 2013 9:28am
Thanks guys! Chris, the largest size would be as an art print in Large. Working at potentially an XL soon.
Chris C. commented on March 25, 2013 12:44pm
Will you please post here or pm me when this becomes available? I will definitely want to purchase. Keep at the good work.

Mark, I was wondering if I could use this art as one of my t-shirts. i'm deeply inspired by this painting, and since my clothing brand will be named Creative Lions i would love to use this as a design, I would appreciate it, if you let me use this design, and of course full credit would be given to you when i'm putting in where i got this design, please let me know, thanks have a good day.
Marc Allante commented on April 23, 2014 5:35pm
Hi there. Apologies but due to an agreement with the owner of the original painting, I cannot allow the design on t-shirts. Hope you understand
dreamchaser97 commented on April 23, 2014 5:36pm
