This is one of David Shepherd's 'Gold Collection'; Started in 1992 with 'Cheetah'
A silkscreen was produced once a year, the edition size was always kept to a minimum, and
due to the 'hands-on' process of printing, no two copies are exactly the same.
The silkscreens can perhaps be regarded as being somewhere between a signed,
limited edition print and an original painting.

The lion is a species in the family Felidae and a member of the genus Panthera.
It has a muscular, deep-chested body, short, rounded head, round ears, and a hairy tuft at the end of its tail.
It is sexually dimorphic; adult male lions have a prominent mane.
Typically, the lion inhabits grasslands and savannas, but is absent in dense forests.
It is usually more diurnal than other big cats, but when persecuted it adapts to being active at night and at twilight.
In the Pleistocene, the lion ranged throughout Eurasia, Africa and North America, but today it has been reduced to fragmented populations in sub-Saharan Africa a
nd one critically endangered population in western India.
It has been listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List since 1996 because populations in African countries have declined by about 43% since the early 1990s.
Lion populations are untenable outside designated protected areas. Although the cause of the decline is not fully understood, habitat loss and conflicts with humans are the greatest causes for concern.

David Shepherd Prints

Most of the published works of David Shepherd are photo lithographs; when printed (by a photographic process), these prints are absolutely identical
and there is no added value in any particular number; This misconception arises from the 'old' days when original etchings and lithographs were produced
using a metal or stone plate, where the ink is spread onto the etched plate and a print produced by pressing the paper or canvas against it.
Even with silkscreen prints, the technology is sufficiently advanced that it would be virtually impossible to tell a difference between the first
and the last number of the edition.

In 1992, David began a series called the 'Gold Editions' which were high quality produced silkscreen prints, giving much deeper and richer colours
than a usual photo lithograph print. Published on high quality water colour paper and a low edition run of between 200 to 495 prints.
One silkscreen was published each year from 1992 begining with 'Cheetah'
