He’s almost sweet, this young male lion. Big eyes, big head, big paws. But there’s wildness in his stillness, his unblinking, impassive stillness. Having heard something, spotted some subtle movement in the grass, his head is up and he’s on the alert, watching from his cave, not coiled, not yet on his feet. But it might be nothing. He might relax, lower his head, look sleepy and approachable and cute. Or not. Kuhnert, “Lion” Kuhnert, never forgot the wildness, the wilderness, that lies in these magnificent animals, just an instant beneath the surface.
Signed and titled verso: Wilhelm Kuhnert/Berlin/Lowe von der Hohle with Wilhelm Kuhnert sales directory sticker.
