Vintage, watercolored and clip-art like lion drawing. This King of the Beasts stands proudly erect as if ready to challenge anyone who comes to close, yet he somehow looks like a friendly lion. He was drawn so long ago that this lion image is now in the public domain.
This vintage drawing dates all the way back to 1869 when it was included, without attribution, in Harry’s Ladder to Learning; published by Ward, Lock & Taylor of London.
This image is copyright free and in the public domain anywhere that extends copyrights 70 years after death or at least 120 years after publication when the original illustrator is unknown.
