Lion design ideas As my present work involves the rhythms and hypnotic surface of the sea, I would be happy to continue this theme and decorate the surface of the lion with ripples or sparkling movements of water. Colours and image to suit sponsor. Another idea would be to paint the lion with the patterns of star constellations, in particular the signs of the zodiac. On a dark background (dark blue/black) the constellations of LEO, LEO Minor and other groups (e.g. Aries, Pisces) would be painted using either silver or gold, their geometric structures and patterns being shown with connecting lines also in silver or gold. I would be using ‘A Field Guide to the Stars And Planets’ Donald Menzel (Collins1977) for an accurate guide in making the geometric patterns. A possible name would be Leo.
