This White Lion’s Gorgeous Mane Could Help Him Star In Any Shampoo Commercial

If we look at major film productions, especially fantasy and animated films, we see that the lion is among the most represented and loved animals. It inspires fear and respect, and at the same time, it symbolizes various qualities, such as courage and determination: few other animals manage to have the evocative and magnetic power of this big feline.

It was also because of this cultural background that when British photographer Simon Needham caught the eye of the lion Moya at the Glen Garriff Conservation shrine, he was literally captivated, to the point of then devoting his energies to portraying its greatness. . The resulting photos, which have become famous all over the world, are a unique spectacle that is not just for animal lovers.
