Photographs from a safari trip in the Serengeti were the inspiration for this work. The male lion was peeking out from behind an acacia tree—both popular symbols of Africa. Ghost images of African animals are embedded in the quilting to extend the moment. African rooibos tea was used to dye some of the fabric in the strip-pieced landscape, and hand-dyed wool from sheep shearing was used for the lion’s mane and foreground grasses.
